About

Destinations In Color

Anastasia Mak was born in the Ukraine, to a Russian mother and a Ukrainian father. She moved to the United States on her own at the age of 14, originally as an exchange student. Her parents followed her to the US shortly after. Since then Anastasia has lived in St. Louis, Atlanta, Italy, and from 2002 on - Chicago. Her international experiences provided her with early appreciation for world diversity. Now she constantly strives to expand her knowledge of places through travel. She became a full-time artist in 2008.

Her past explorations, various forms of art, old and new architecture, street graffiti, as well as curiosity about unfamiliar lands influence her work.

Mixing geometrical patterns with distinguishable buildings, landscapes, or creatures, Anastasia creates works in the style of expressionism. The main subject matter of Anastasia’s paintings is destinations – which can be canals of Amsterdam, valleys of Colorado, or the skyscrapers of her home, Chicago. She also enjoys painting whimsical people, birds, and animals.

Anastasia paints from photos that she takes, and from her sketches. While she mainly works in acrylics, she also enjoys incorporating mixed media into her pieces - such as screen printing, markers, and collage. She creates in her Chicago studio, located in Ravenswood neighborhood.

Mak has a broad group of collectors, ranging from college students to corporate executives. “To me, making art is both challenging and entertaining,” says she. “I enjoy passing great pleasure I feel from creating paintings to those who acquire them. My art exists to fulfill souls and relieve stress. While the actual process of painting is driven by my experiences and imagination, I let the audience find their own life force in my work – be it happy, nostalgic, mysterious, or purely decorative.”

Refunds and Exchanges
FEEDBACK

Etsy Feedback is always greatly appreciated. If you are thinking of leaving feedback that is less than positive for any reason, please convo me first and I will strive to resolve whatever it is that leaves you dissatisfied. Below are the details on addressing damaged goods, refunds and exchanges.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES

Please inspect your order immediately after receiving it. Refunds or exchanges will be granted for damaged goods IF notification is made within 72 hours of you receiving your order. In case of damaged goods, please notify me and save all the packaging, as damaged product will have to be inspected by the carrier and shipped back to me in order for a refund or exchange to take place. All work kept beyond 72 hrs without damage notification is considered to be delivered in fine condition and is a final sale.

I understand that it can be hard to purchase art online (due to unpredictability of computer screen colors, inability to “feel” the piece, etc.), and customer satisfaction is very important to me. So far, all of my online customers have been pleasantly surprised when receiving my artwork orders, and claim that they look much better in person than they do on the computer screen. But, if you are dissatisfied with your order for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me within 72 HOURS of receiving your shipment and I will work with you to exchange the product or issue a refund (minus the shipping charges, unless shipping damage has occurred). If you have not notified me of any problems within 72 hours of receiving your order, sale is considered final. However, if a unique problem comes up, and I am glad to receive your communication at ANY time and will always strive to leave the customer satisfied.
