Aneli Abeyante joined Second Life on January 2, 2009.
In real life she is a painter who always strives for harmonization, and this is what she is looking for in Second Life.
Aneli is the curator of one of the most famous galleries in Second Life: La Maison d “Aneli.
According to the motto: “The world can not progress without the creation,
but he must discover a wide audience” she put her gallery in the service of the artist.
There they have great opportunities to present their works and to take the viewer to their “galaxies” on a journey.
I have visited countless exhibitions in Aneli’s Gallery, and it has always struck me that she always remains in the background.
Aneli is a lady who doesn’t need a lot of words to bring us closer to what moves, occupies or directs her.
Rather, after the first few sentences we can feel that her state of mind, state of sensation, a way of living and her mind is always on alert about art.
An introverted lady who lives what she says and has made sharing art her primary goal in Second Life.
A lady who radiates harmony and balance and who repeatedly paints an enchanting smile on our faces.
Aneli´s strong motivation and hard work over many years,
has opened new perspectives and *doors* to many artists and art lovers to meet discuss and make new friends.
In this world where everyone shows and tells everything, Aneli values discretion and privacy.
Therefore, I like to close my brief introduction with a big thank you to Aneli, and Pat Meeha’s quote,
“There’s an excitement to officiating a well-played game.
A lot of discretion, a lot of judgment comes into play.”

Aneli Abeyante´s Bio
“I love geometry and mathematics.
So after much practice, I managed to clear structures and shapes.
In reality, I practice painting, I do not have precise style, but I always seek harmonization.
After many exhibitions, I decide to have a gallery on Second Life
Through my gallery I’m trying to expose all forms of creative RL or SL.
The world can not progress without the creation, but he must discover a wide audience.
I put my gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.
I invite you to see and meet the artists, discuss, share in my openings, to emphasize the friendship in any language and enjoy your visit.
