The artist says about herself: “My paintings – is often a display of what I would like sometime and have somewhere seen. These are my dreams, which are sometimes more real than reality. Almost all self-portrait paintings, not in the sense of external similarity – they are in tune with my thoughts today. People in the pictures – visual cues. I no longer want to “talk” about eternal things rather than on fleeting episodes of our life. I am happy when people recognize themselves in my work or meet their thoughts or feelings”.

Anna Berezovskaya about herself: “Some of my paintings are moody. Example, I love the quiet cozy winter. Why knights and ladies? Everyone probably wants to feel self a queen or a king, and I believe that men can still be knights. I take my subjects from life, watching our lives and transmit my observations into their world, a very good and kind. In my world, there is nothing wrong: there is no war, no accidents or disasters. No television – I almost do not watch it to protect myself against it. I believe that we create and control our lives. People focus on disasters and accidents, and then no wonder we worry about our life”
