She was born in Gdynia (Poland) in 1966. Studied Restoration of Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun (Poland). In 1991 she received the Master Degree in Fine Arts. In 1992 she was awarded a “distinction” by the Polish Ministry of Culture for her master’s degree project – restoration of an 18th century icon. In 1993 she was awarded a prize for her series of illustrations for children’s Bible. During her studies, Anna discovered her love for the paintings from times gone by icons, religious paintings in the Orthodox tradition. Her icons are painted both in classic style following all iconography canons and her own “modern folk” style. In 2016 and 2017 she has coordinated the international art-project “Lutheran Icons” for Finnish Lutheran Church.
