Anna was born in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Since she was little (as far as she can remember), she has always loved art. She drew everywhere if she had a piece of paper and a pencil; sometimes just a wall was enough. Anna tried different materials and techniques but loves pencils most of all. She also loves classical music - Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky – and listens to it while she’s working, finding it peaceful and inspiring. The process of creation always brings Anna joy and she wishes to share this joy with everyone. Anna graduated from the Technical University of Sevastopol, but then realized that she was still drawn to the arts. So Anna went to the Academy of Art and, after graduating from the Kharkov State Academy of Design and Arts in 2006, she moved to the US. Now she lives in the beautiful city of Sammamish in Washington state with her husband and two little daughters.
