Thank you for visiting.

A little bit about me:

A Finn born in France, I have lived in the UK most of my life, nowadays with my family near the seaside in Worthing, West Sussex.

Largely self-taught, I started Anna's Drawing Room a few years ago. I draw, paint and make prints featuring plants and landscapes, from both real and imagined places.

An ongoing printmaking project began late 2017, building a collection of screen prints featuring trees, forests and leafy plants, playing with layered textures. These were shown at my first solo exhibition in November 2018 at Colonnade House Worthing, which was very exciting! I also took part in my first ever dedicated print fair in Margate with Ink Paper + Print - a weekend away and a great event all in one.

The order of the day so far in 2019 has been: moody landscapes, looming trees and rolling clouds. Textural layers are still a favourite. I'm working on a series of ink studies to exhibit early next year, and continuing with the screen prints. Autumn is looking very busy - I hope to see you at some of the events below!


In other news, I run an artists' open house, Ashdown Road Artists - in its 5th year now. This is both fun and rewarding, and Worthing folk are really supportive of creative events in the town - we see many returning faces each time which is brilliant. We have just closed after a brilliant event with an amazing line-up of artists, plus a pretty cool feature... an understairs cinema! Find us at our Art Jumble Sale on Saturday 28th September (details below).

Please do hop over to my Etsy shop to buy prints and cards, and take a look at my Instagram for daily updates and stories.
