About Anna

Anna on bench in France

I’m mainly self-taught; I spent my childhood drawing. But I’m also continuously educating myself. Both online and in person.

In the last couple of years I’ve taken the following courses:

  • Illustration Foundation, Folkuniversitet, Sweden
  • Illustration Continuation part 1, Folkuniversitet, Sweden
  • Dynamic Sketching 1, CGMA (Computer Graphics Master Academy)
  • Dynamic Sketching 2, CGMA
  • Perspective, CGMA
  • Figure Drawing Fundamentals, Proko

When I paint I like to listen to audio books and podcasts. I mostly listen to shows (or books) about personal development and business.

I also run or do yoga on a daily basis. And in the evenings I watch murder mysteries with my husband.

A Swede in Germany

I’m originally from Sweden and I’ve been living in Germany for ten years. I live in Hamm, a small town in the Ruhr area (near Düsseldorf and Cologne). I live together with my husband, our three daughters, and a dog.

My Background

My background is in software and web development. I got my civil engineering degree (M.Sc.) at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
