Annie Seaton's photography captures original images of surf life. The California-based artist was born in Toronto, Ontario. She describes herself as a painter who uses photography as her artistic medium. Through her artwork, viewers can enjoy her colorfully textured images.
Seaton's work is exhibited both nationally and internationally. The technic used to capture the surf vibes uses mixed media to push and exploit photography beyond its traditional limits. By cutting into printed photos and mounting them into her paintings, Seaton explores a new way of combining both artistic mediums. The effect produced is reminiscent of lo-fi aesthetics and old-fashioned prints.
The artist's goal is to "Convey deep meaningful moments of joy visa vis painting expressibly in my dreamy creamy language of color."
