New Leaf Art by ASmall
In May of 2016, I began a new chapter in my life. I moved from my home in Pennsylvania and traveled 2,000 miles to my new home in New Mexico, hence, turning a New Leaf in my life. I fell in love with the climate, the beautiful vistas, the history, and the heritage of the people of New Mexico. Every day I discover something new and beautiful in the Southwestern United States, and you will see this influence in my art. On New Year's Day 2017, I married my love and although some of my paintings will still be signed ALaslo, my legal name is Anne Small and I will sign ASmall from today November 10, 2017 forward.
My love of art began as a child. Throughout the years, I studied art under different professors, private art instructors, and classes at the Baum School of Art. It gave me an appreciation for many different mediums. My current medium of choice is pastel, but I love change, so I will also showcase pieces in different mediums.
A love of travel began an interest in photography and you will see my photography for sale as well as my paintings.
I invite you to join me in this journey we call life, and experience our world as I see it through my paintings and photography.
Love and Peace,
