  Curriculum Vitae


Professional Painter and Illustrator 

Alanna Marohnic has been painting professionally since 1980. Her work has been described
as "mystic realism". Combining realism with the fantastical and the abstract, she employs
watercolour, gouache, ink, graphite, acrylic, gold leaf, and silver point to create her paintings.

Alanna's artwork is found in collections worldwide. Presently, she divides her time amongst
Croatia, Canada, and Kuwait.
