Anna Pasternak began painting in oil by observing, under her mother's tuition, and later studied with abstract expressionist painters Streichman, Steimatzky and Kahane. After over a decade of abstract painting, a prolonged stay abroad and searching, she found her personal path in painting. Since the 1980s, she is focused on painting dynamic scenes of people in different environments - at home, in the city, in the desert and on the beach. The scenes spread across multiple panels and continue beyond the borders of the fabric. In her paintings, depicting a moment in time, Man's weight is equal to that of the environment, both in terms of theme and composition.
