Anna Pasqualucci is one of only a handful of local artists who continue to embrace century old Baltimore folk art of window screen painting. Each hand painted window screens is a heart-felt work to be displayed in a gallery along the streets for all to enjoy. Anna treasures the unique character of the folk artsy form that allows the sun to shine on it and air to pass through it, and at the same time forbids curious onlookers from catching much more than a glimpse beyond the painting and into the heart of the home.
I love transforming people’s dreams and treasures onto their own personalized house window screens. Bringing a smile to passersby faces is a true honor and reward.
I am a disabled artist who after many years working with in my hands in biotech research labs now find it difficult to hold a pencil to draw. I cradle the paintbrush to make delicate brush strokes on forgiving screens like the ones I had so admired in my childhood. Screen painting is therapeutic for the hands and the soul.
