Anita Faber spent her childhood with her brother and sister, her parents, and her grandmother on a Luxembourg farm in Beiler, a small village near the Belgian and German borders. There was always plenty to do on their farm and it was only natural for the children to help out. They lived with and in nature and the whole village was a huge playground for us. It is therefore not surprising that nature provided her with the first patterns that she put on paper and on canvas. She has been drawing since her early childhood and her grandmother has always actively sup-ported her in this passion. Of course, drawing was her favorite subject in school because it al-lowed her to express herself with colored pencils and watercolors. Over time, she learned, mostly self-taught, to master a wide variety of painting techniques, including «airbrush». She has decorated schools and painted huge underwater landscapes on the walls and hallways of public swimming pools. Her ambition and her love of detail drew her to photorealism. For her, depict-ing plants, animals, and people down to the smallest detail was the pinnacle of painting and this is how the Luxembourgish painter Guy Hary, among others, inspired her. Starting from pen-cils, through acrylics, to watercolors and to oil paints, she learned to know many techniques with their advantages and disadvantages. Currently, she prefers oil paints on canvas, as they allow painting both extremely detailed and very out of focus subjects, bringing depth and «three-dimensionality» to the paintings. Although she has an impatient ball of energy by nature, painting has a calming, almost hypnotic effect on her that allows her to forget all problems and worries and immerse herself, full of happiness, in an imaginary and colorful.
Painting is my passion. My life, nature and people give me the motives. Seeing the spectator of my works inspired and amazed makes me happy
