One thought on “About the Artist

  1. Judith C Laverty

    Anda – I can’t imagine why I haven’t thought to check you out on the web before, but I have missed you more than you can know and didn’t have a way to contact you. Besides being my favorite artist, you were my friend. We live in Tennessee (Maryville) now and you may be surprised to know that I have my very own Anda Chance gallery in my house. So glad to see that you are thriving in “retirement” and trust that Irv is well, too.
