You have to have opposites: you’ve got to have that dark and light. Art doesn’t come from theory, it comes from the soul and from learning the history of art.
Animals are a recurring theme in Wheeler's paintings. She has frequently painted the goat and cow. In this exhibition Wheeler has introduced more animals including the African zebra, buffalo and elephant. She loves the pattern of the zebra and the boldness of the shape of the buffalo head with its strong horns. Anna paints the animals with whimsy. She says "I love animals. They are wonderful to look at. I try to capture their individual personalities through paint."
