Anita expresses her creativity whimsically with a variety of subjects and styles but with an ever present theme: her passion for vibrant colour, pattern, texture and form. Time spent living in the Central Australian indigenous community, Papunya, home of the Tula artists, has had an enduring and significant influence and continues to be of inspiration in Anita's paintings.
The 2010 Deonte ‘Estate 519’ Barossa Valley Shiraz wine label features the dramatically colourful oil painting “Patchwork Landscape” which is a spontaneous and fresh representation of fields of various crops in which Anita draws on the folk art and naïve styles of painting.
The artwork featured on the 2010 Deonte ‘Estate 512’ Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet wine label, “The Two of Us”, is one of four oil paintings depicting the same scene, peopled by different characters and their canine companions. Influenced by the Expressionist movement, the series demonstrates the emotional transformation the use of vastly different colour schemes can produce.
The 2012 Deonte 'Reserve 710' Barossa Valley Shiraz wine label features the abstract oil painting “Four Trees” painted as part of a collection of various representations of trees with inspiration drawn from Abstract Expressionism and the work of artists such as Kandinsky, Klee and Pollock.
