Alanna Roth is a multi-faceted artist who creates both private and public commissioned work as well as one-of-a-kind and limited-edition gallery pieces. The inspiration behind her work is shown from the spiritual and emotive essence of the human condition as well as the myriad biological and geological forms shaped by the forces of nature over time. She creates exquisite works with the intention of drawing viewers into the story behind the works as narratives. Her art has been publicly and privately commissioned as well as being included in numerous national and international gallery exhibits.
Prior to embarking on her career as a full-time artist, Alanna received her bachelor of science degree in biology with the intention of continuing on to medical school. Her plans changed while attending a ceramic sculpture class in her last year before graduating. This is when she realized that her true passion was art. Shortly after graduation Alanna made the decision to leave southern California to live and work in the beautiful Sonoma County Wine country.
In addition to her many years of hands-on studio work, Alanna traveled to Italy to study figurative sculpture and classical art at the International School of Art in Umbria. She continued her studies in figurative sculpture with master sculptors, John Clean, Lincoln Fox, Eugene Daughter, Cristina Mukulasek, Don Gale and anatomist Andrew Cawrse.
Alanna's work is profoundly influenced by the beauty of her surroundings as well as the colourful characters she has met during her travels. Together with her husband, Brad and son, Alex and dogs Bananas and Enzo she lives and works on the grounds of their family owned Square Peg Estate Vineyard, tasting room and art gallery.
