Anneris Kondratas - Sleeve

What are you interested in creating?
AK – I’m always looking into new ways of expressing myself. Moleskine allows me to build my collection of watercolors in a single place and navigate through the different realms by just turning the page. Right now I’m working on a series of drawings about wildlife and animals in general but taking it to the next level by including some elements of fantasy and fiction. I like working on a large watercolor notebook since the paper is excellent to support all the different techniques I use.

What does creating on a Moleskine notebook mean to you?
AK – Moleskine is not only a notebook where I can express my ideas, it also works as my journal. I start every morning, after having a cup of tea, by opening my notebook and taking a quick look into that white canvas. Almost immediately my mind starts wondering and before I know it I’m already sketching something.

Where do you like to escape to when you create?
AK – I have a big white desk where I love to work and where I’m surrounded by pencils, brushes, watercolor tubes, a bright light coming from the window. Also my faithful companion dog, who lays down next to my desk while I’m creating. I always have a notebook in my night stand, just in case of a creative emergency. Besides that some days I just like walking outside, sit on the grass and just get inspired.

A parting quote to share with everyone?
AK – As an artist, my world revolves around images and visual expressions. I’d like to say that my inspiration comes from anything, most of the time it’s particular moment, as Henri Cartier-Bresson said: “Photography is, for me, a spontaneous impulse coming from an ever attentive eye which captures the moment and its eternity.”
