Architectural Digest described her work as “the epitome of nature-inspired elegance.”
Just this week (March 19) Anna was among a select group of artists chosen by Saatchi Art for inclusion in the Nobu Contemporaries Collection, “highlighting exceptional emerging artists from around the world whose works embody the unique chemistry and perfect balance that define the Nobu experience: sensuous luxury, fine artistry, and surprising details.” The collection was curated by Saatchi chief curator Rebecca Wilson and Nobu Hotel Shoreditch resident artist, Sichi.
