Anna Gruca

Painting, Booth 722

I am a full time artist and art teacher working in the GTA. I studied Fine Arts and Psychology at York University and completed my B.Ed. Degree at University of Toronto. My artwork is heavily inspired by my long time hobby of collecting crystals, minerals and other precious stones which was first introduced to me by my wonderful mother. As an avid rockhound there is something deeply magical and almost spiritual about pulling crystals from the Earth. Personally, I am deeply intrigued by the colour, translucency and luminosity of these naturally occurring wonders which are so perfectly sculpted by nature. I hope my paintings are able to immerse the viewer in the colour experience and magic of each unique crystal.
