Anastasiya Bachmanova is an artist, environmentalist, adventure seeker, and mom living in Santa Cruz, California. My passion is to experience the outdoors via surfing, climbing, hiking, and other adventures, and my inspiration comes from moments of connection to my surroundings – the life, the colors, the energy. I translate these moments into paintings that are true to their subjects, yet enhanced with an expression of my personality – using bright colors and flowing lines.
