Hello!

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 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 in March 2020, and continuing with the screen prints. Autumn has been very busy with events and fairs, not to mention opening my own shop! Come and visit FOUND shop & studio in Worthing to see my work alongside over 15 other artists' creations. Specialising in print and illustration, you can also find gift items and cards.

 

In other news, I run an artists' open house, Ashdown Road Artists - approaching its 6th year. 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're lucky to have an amazing line-up of artists, plus a pretty cool feature... One Bum Cinema Club, showcasing amazing animations.

This year our open house crew has joined me in two Art Jumble Sales, which were brilliant, busy and fun to boot.

See my Etsy shop to buy prints and cards, and take a look at my Instagram for updates and stories.
