Biography from a third party submitted on 02/14/2008:
Anita Winstanley-Roark studied at the University of Arizona and completed her BFA in art history and photography at the University of South Florida and then continued her studies at the University of New Mexico.  In her early career, she trained under such noted photographers as Arron Siskin, Harry Callahan, Harold Jones and Todd Walker. 

Winstanley-Roark has exhibited in numerous galleries and photographic shows.  Her fine art photographs consist of still lifes, landscapes and nudes with a “classical feel” and have won her numerous awards including 1st place, Gulf Shore Magazine photo contest. 

Her photographs have been published in many magazines including Gulf Shore Magazine, Cape Cod Times, Central Florida, Scene Magazine, Cape Cod Driftlines, The Naturalist, The Brewster Guide, The Hyannis Guide, The Cape Cod Guide and other periodicals.  Cape Art Review, A-Plus Magazine and the Cape Cod Times have both done featured articles on Ms. Winstanley-Roark and her photographic art. American Art Review included her work as the only photographer in a recent article entitle "Twenty Leading Ladies of Art".

Cape Cod Times media reviewers said her photographs of the nude were "powerful" and "the glowing skin colors" create a "highly sensuous" mood.  "Here, nature and the female body often meet to create powerful, riveting images that seem to reach across time."

Winstanley-Roark has exhibited in numerous shows including the Museum of Natural History, Cape Museum of Fine Arts, “Cummaquid Fine Arts Figure Show”, C3TV's "Cape Cod Photographer’s Show" and as an invitational artist at the "Women Creating - A Celebration of Cape Cod Women” with her photograph "Sitting With Minerva" selected as the centerpiece for this exhibition catalog.  

In 1995, Ms. Winstanley-Roark and her husband, Robert K. Roark, opened their own gallery in Brewster, MA.  In 2002, with a growing demand for more room, and with a desire to add new artists to the roster, they relocated the gallery to Dennis, MA, to a larger and beautifully restored old Sea Captain's home.

Of her work, the photographer says:  "My photographic ink prints are explorations of light and form.  I prefer to use natural light to paint photographic images that explore our relationship with nature.  

In my figurative works I do this by focusing on using light to contrast the textures and repetitive shapes found in nature and the natural shape of my models.  In these images I work to create moving figurative statements with a sense of energy that empowers the female form and displays its connection to nature.

In my landscape images I go out to capture, in direct images, the voluptuous quality of light and shapes that is all around us but so easily taken for granted.  I love to stop and reflect upon the beauty of this world and our place in it, and to share this beauty with others."
