Annell L Metsker, known professionally as Annell, combines photography with digital painting and oils to create images that evoke the soul of her subjects and portray mood and emotion visually. Whether she is creating a portrait, landscape or figurative work of art in mixed media or in oils, she is able to use the beauty and mystery of light and shadow, and the rhythm of motion to captivate the viewer's attention.
