ABOUT ANNA

Anna was born and raised in a small town nearby Saint-Petersburg, close to Finnish border. Surrounded by cold waters of Finnish Bay and green dreamy woods, she started to paint and draw before the school. After she moved to Saint-Petersburg with her parents at the age of 10, she started her artistic education at the art school. After graduating, she decided to have a "safe and stabil" education and studied marketing and design. Since 2007 she has been working as a graphic designer and freelance photographer, though never losing her passion to fine arts. 2009, she started the whole new life, married to her love Sergei, who is a musician, moved to Basel, Switzerland. 2010 she gave life to their daughter Sophia. 2012 Anna decided to continue her artistic education at well-known Basel School of Design, where she met many new friends and was experimenting with new mediums and techniques, such as printing, etching, collage and illustration. 2014 she started her way as a film photographer. At the same time Anna continues developing her artistic style, using watercolor, acrylics and oil paint, finally feeling enough freedom to paint abstract, as she always wanted to.
