The family moved to their new house in 1991, where Anna has her Studio Gallery. Her first Exhibition of Original Drawings was in The Renaissance III Gallery, County Council Buildings, Wicklow, in 1993. She has had many exhibitions since and she is a member of the IDI and the Crafts Council of Ireland. Although Anna was born in Lima, Peru, South America returning to Denmark when she was only 18 months old and her parents are Danish she has lived here in Ireland for over 35 years.

The current printed range is based on a series of black and white, pen and ink drawings and most of them feature the “Silhouette people”.

All the drawings have a story - The words are printed and usually accompany the prints. She produced a range of ceramic pots with potter Rob D’Eath in 2001.
