Anathalia Jolie is an acrylic painter who executes a craft that explores the interactions between color and light. Her paintings appear to morph and have movement when viewed under RGB LED lights.

Native to San Antonio, Texas, Anathalia began teaching herself to paint at the age of 15. She’s always loved creating, but her signature color changing art style formed when she was gifted LED strip lights. While setting them up, Anathalia quickly became fascinated with the manner in which the RGB colors coated various objects in her room. With a personal story to share, she armed herself with light and color for her tools. Anathalia took on the idea to create paintings that change under different lighting circumstances.

Anathalia, on her own, began to study the way different pigments would change and glow under her lights. She uses this knowledge of how the colors react to make decisions on color placements in her paintings.
