My name is Anna Ponomarenko and I’m healing seascape artist from Ukraine.
I love the mix of art and mental health themes. I have found the sea to be a great distraction and stress reliever. This is how begin my Horizon series of healing seascapes paintings.
Each seascape is unique, just like our mood shades! Every time when I create a new seascape, I got a whole range of emotions in each painting. These were emotions and moods that could be conveyed through art.
I chose the theme of water because this element is an amazing symbiosis of freedom, mood, and inner state. I focus on mental health because this topic is closest and most relevant to me.
12 years of design development taking into account the constantly changing trends in the IT sector, the severe restrictions associated with the Coronavirus in the world, and the war in my country have raised the question of internal balance and the ability to be yourself is finally acute! All these events have become a reference point and a window to myself.
My work has already become loved in different places of the world, such as
USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, Korea, Australia, and Ukraine.
