Artist of the Month
The walls of Burlap and Bean are currently
featuring the work of Anabela George
Anabela is an outdoor photographer with a passion for travel and an appreciation for the aesthetic beauty of our natural and human-made world.
Born in Lisbon, Portugal she attributes her wanderlust to her ancestors, the great explorers. She grew up in California where after graduating from college she felt a compelling desire to explore the world. She traveled extensively for the next 20 years as a crew member on private yachts, and then as a flight attendant on private jets. Having developed an interest in photography and writing at an early age, she documents her adventures through photography, journals, and more recently a travel blog. Anabela's photographic philosophy is that while she loves realism, she enjoys experimenting with the tools that technology has made available. Over the last few years her style has evolved and she has been trying new techniques and styles. You can see that in her abstract nature images.
After spending years living in the tropics, and Florida, she now lives in New Providence Township with her husband and two cats. She is enjoying the 4 seasons, and always planning a new adventure, camera in tow.
