Whitney is a self-taught multi-disciplinary fine artist practicing in the mediums of drawing since she was three, painting since she was 15, and practicing collage since she was 27. Born in Alaska into a 3rd generation commercial fishing family, she and her family moved to Breckenridge, Colorado in 1996. She took up ski racing for four years before switching to cross country and track. Excelling in sports, she attended Duke University on a full-ride athletic scholarship and in 2009 received her B.A. in Fine Arts.
Whitney’s signature style is contemporary realism with a flare of pop-cultural nostalgia. She considers herself an “old school, raw, purist”: everything is free-handed and that stems from the thousands of hours refining her fundamental art skills over the past 25 years.
Her blue-collar upbringing also prepared her way as an artist. There were no shortcuts to being successful: pure passion, drive and long hours make up a signature Whitney Anderson art piece.
She has displayed her work nationally in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, and Denver.
