Anita Wexler grew up in a small country town in Illinois. Her practical and hardworking parents did not find any importance in art.  Anita won a full college scholarship for Art; unfortunately, her parents made her turn in down. Anita enlisted in the Navy while still in high school and celebrated her 18th birthday in bootcamp. Determination brought her to New York after her Naval service. While working full time;  Anita graduated with a BFA from Parsons New School of Design (winning a partial scholarship) and Art Education certification from Bank Street College, both in New York City. She also has her M.Ed from National Louis University. Wexler is currently in her 16th year as an Art educator. Her artwork has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.  Her artwork is many private collections including that of Jane Seymour and William Wegman.

My art is travels through the spiritual world and lands in expressionism. I have explored India, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Amsterdam, France, England, Canada, Guatemala, Panama, too many to list them all to whittle down and find a universal connection.  Visually my art takes you on journey to discover enlightenment within one’s self. I go to the past to bring forth the future.  I create paintings, illustrations, mixed media drawings and assemblage sculpture.  I continue to experiment and grow daily with my art.
