Anna grew up in post-Soviet Russia, where, in addition to academic arts education, she also studied linguistics, philosophy, and psychology. Aged 21 Anna moved to London, where her professional career path started in the early 2000s. "Growing up in Russia you can't avoid influence of great constructivists and avant-garde abstract artists such as Kandinsky, Malevich, Chagal, but I was also drawn to Vrubel and Roerich".
Anna's works are in between non-figurative and realistic art. Based on psychology and modern sciences, she is fond of analyzing the functions of the human brain and the processes of perception of reality.
"I am drawn to abstract art as it communicates by bypassing the words and formalized understanding of the world".
For more than 6 years Anna has been successfully collaborating with luxury design brands and creatives designing custom digital prints and surface patterns based on her original artwork. Her personal exhibitions were held in London and Moscow.
Anna's work has been photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue UK and appeared in numerous fashion publications and art press.
