"Treasure the ordinary, treasure the eccentric, whatever is made out of caring, respect it." Award-winning artist Jacob von Sternberg prefers his painting to be a development of ideas. Emotion in slow motion - watercolor, collage, ink, and digital. Art is my life! I get inspired by everything, the universe or a grain of sand. Yes, art is my life, with every breath I take. Influenced by my adventures, time outdoors and memories of my global travels. I prefer my painting to be a development of ideas rather than static images. I often use different styles or unusual color combinations to achieve this. The life that goes on around me, the places I’ve been, or the times I’ve lived through are reflected in my paintings. My work has always helped me refine self awareness, and provided an outlet for expression. In my pursuit I have won several awards for my watercolor paintings and I have sold many works to individuals and businesses. I have done solo shows and been a featured artist several times. Many of my paintings have been acquired by international luxury hotel chains and are enjoyed by international guests every day. I am honored by the appreciation my paintings and illustrations have received. Why Anutu? My friends call me Anutu, what means the one who welcomes and embraces it all. Thus spread the love!
