Artist Spotlight

Anna Olivia Smith

At the Luppoleto Gallery: February 2024

For as long as she can remember, Anna has loved to create. As a self-professed collector of hobbies, the medium has changed over the years (knitting, sculpting, bookbinding, macrame, the list goes on…) but painting has always been the form that she revisited again and again. Anna studied graphic design and English at Northeastern University, and is currently the brand design manager at a software company called Privy.

The subjects of her art vary widely, but she consistently finds inspiration in music and literature. Her cat, Lita, also makes frequent appearances in her work. She works primarily in acrylics, but also dabbles in digital painting.
