The Alma 8x10 Original Cut Paper Artwork - Art & Wall Decor

$285

One of a Kind item
This piece was inspired by Alma Woodsey Thomas, a Black artist who became known for her colourful, abstract paintings that she created after retiring from a teaching career. Featuring shades of blue on a pale pink backdrop (a twist on her “Garden of Blue” painting), this piece is reminiscent of a blue pool of water- fragmented by refracting light.

“Through color, I have sought to concentrate on beauty and happiness, rather than on man’s inhumanity to man.”
-Alma W. Thomas

Fact about Alma: She was the first woman in America to receive a bachelor’s degree in art (in her 30s nonetheless!) and her artwork was hung in the white house during the Obama era.

Elevated playfulness for the young at heart

Hi I’m Anita, but you can call me Neets. I am a mixed media artist/ illustrator and I create artwork that is playful and warm- for the young and young at heart.

A lot of my artwork uses hand cut washi paper; and, as a result, my process is a thoughtful homage to the inner child, imperfection, and slow living.

Just like when chefs make a gourmet meal from farm to table ingredients, I recognize that the paper I use was handmade, its fibers grown on a farm cultivated by the hands of many workers. It took a lot for it to get here in my hands and it’s an honour to shape it into artwork.

I release one to two thoughtfully designed collections a year. At the heart of each collection is a deep curiosity. Whether it's a concept I want to explore, or a topic about which I would like to learn; each original piece is a love letter to wonder.
