I was born in Germany and moved to Seattle in 2013.
After receiving a masters degree in education, math and visual arts I worked as a teacher in Brazil, Africa, Germany and USA. In 2016
I realized my life long dream to open ANNA'S ART LAB.
As an artist myself I enjoy sharing my ideas and inspirations with others. Everyday again I am fascinated by what art can do for personal growth and development.
Shirin started taking painting classes with Anna and is loving it. She is fluent in English and Persian. She enjoys painting, craft and doing pottery. She is constantly involved with Childhood Education Programs around the world with UNICEF and has been also working with Preschoolers in school settings for more than 10 years.
Ani is a sculptor with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and over 25 years experience in the design world. She has worked in RI, NY, and CA sculpting toys, designing handbags, teaching art, and creating store displays. Ani enjoys sharing her passion for art and finds inspiration in nature.
Zahra has known Anna for almost 4 years, first taking art classes herself and then volunteering at her camps and workshops. Today she is studying Illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design. "I am excited to come back this summer to work at Anna's Art Lab again!"
Zahira started as a student at the Art Lab and has known Anna for almost 4 years.
