Professional Artist


Alanna Marohnic has been painting professionally since 1980. Her work has been described
as "mystic realism". Combining realism with strongly abstracted subject matter, she creates
paintings that speak to the subconscious.  To create her work she employs watercolour,
acrylic, embossing, gold leaf, silver point, graphite, and stenciling techniques. In addition
to providing her clientele with new work, Ms. Marohnic is constantly engaged in fulfilling
requests for private commissions and illustrations. Alanna Marohnic has received grants
from the Canadian Ontario Arts Council, and has won awards in juried shows.  During the
course of her career, Ms. Marohnic has sold her artwork to collectors worldwide, from
Canada to Australia, and has participated in exhibitions across Canada. She currently

spends a great deal of time visiting Croatia, where she draws inspiration from immersing
herself in the Croatian cultural palette.

 

Fine Art Website


Ms. Marohnic is the designer of her own website (www.VeryPinkFineArt.com.  ) showcasing
images of her paintings, stone lithography, art objects, illustrations, and fine art necklaces.
Ms. Marohnic has created a site that reflects the diversity and depth of her work.  She strives
to create a personal experience for visitors by explaining her inner processes and including
close-up photographs that highlight her techniques. The website is also an important venue
for clients interested in seeing her latest work.
