Anita Skinner is an Okanagan artist who has studied drawing and painting most of her life.
“I love to use my own colours and imagination, as well as tell a story in my paintings. I love the freedom of creating what comes to mind – whether it is a blue tree or a green sky. I like to create folksy images that make people smile, and even perhaps create memories. I have, over the years, painted many red trucks, rolling hills, mountains, and colourful houses. I also love to paint children playing in the snow or picking apples in an orchard.” – Anita Skinner
