Anne-Marie de Rivera - Abstract - Figure Figurative - Portrait Artist
Anne-Marie de Rivera was born in New York City of Belgian and Dutch parents and
educated in Canada, Chile and Switzerland, graduating from l’Ecole des Beaux
Arts de Genève. She was then commissioned by l’Opera de Genève to design the set
for "David and Goliath.
At age 22 she moved to Mexico, contributing to the development of international
coastal resorts for twelve years. After returning to the United States in 1975
and raising her children, she resumed her painting career in 1988, exhibited
internationally at the "Salon des Artistes Français ‘93" at the Grand Palais in
Paris, "The World Contemporary Art ‘98" in Los Angeles, and in 2000 at the
"Centro Cultural de las Condes" in Santiago, Chile, among many others.
Her abstract and representational work blends European influence with the
colors, passion and folklore of Latin America, resulting in a unique, vibrant
style. Fascinated by the animal form and the human figure, she focuses on the
intrinsic expression particular to her subjects and their interrelationship.
Painting in oils, acrylics and mixed media, she has completed numerous
commissioned pieces of people and pets for private collectors. She currently
resides in California.
