Anne Kupillas is a Long Beach-based fine artist working primarily in watercolor. Anne was born in 1968 in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. Her love of art began as a child growing up with a family of musicians and artists on Long Island, NY, who encouraged her creativity. Anne’s artwork is primarily informed by a love of nature and the human form. A seasoned traveler, Anne enjoys sketching in different countries – wherever she is, she finds local inspiration.

Anne is a graduate of the State University of Albany, New York, with a Bachelor of Arts, and has studied fine art, art history, and archaeology in New York, Northamptonshire, England, and California. Anne currently lives in Long Beach, California, and is a member of the Arts Council of Long Beach, a volunteer watercolor painting instructor at CSULB’s OLLI program, and leads weekly watercolor Zoom classes.  

Anne’s artwork has been showcased in group and solo exhibitions in California, New York and Florida. She is currently developing a series of watercolor birds for a joint exhibition in November at Long Beach’s Alpert JCC’s Gatov Gallery, and a just showcased her first solo exhibition of abstract watercolor landscapes here in Long Beach, at Studio 115.

Her artwork is available in prints and originals on Etsy as AnneQPdraws, and she is currently open for custom watercolor portraits and commissions.
