Anna Schalk

Anna is a retired Pediatric Occupational Therapist who treated children in NYC for 15 years.  She was a graduate and then teacher at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. She continues to have a long distance healing practice.


Anna studied painting throughout her life: U of Georgia, Rochester Tech, College of Charleston, and the Corcoran School of Art.  Her teachers included Gene Davis, Miles Batt, Carla O?Connor, Michael Tyzack, Michael Phillips and others.


Anna has exhibited in both solo and group shows in various cities: NYC; Washington, DC; Charleston, SC; Miami, FL; Lookout Mtn., TN and others. Her paintings have been juried in to national shows, winning awards as well as being included in multiple traveling exhibits. She is currently on the AAA Board of Directors.


Anna has discovered that any given painting is a deepening response to the subject.  Whether the subject is a person or nature or abstract, a conversation occurs between the painting and Anna.  Her work in process is one of constant addition and subtraction: scraping and layering color and marks until either the painting or she declares ENOUGH.
