Anna Sailamaa

In the words of the artist:

I’m a Helsinki-based illustrator and art teacher who has studied art education at Aalto University and fine arts at the University of the Arts. I like bright colors, forest trips and black coffee. I enjoy drawing and inventing stories, and that is also why I enjoy teaching arts to others. However, not all pictures or drawings can succeed. Then there is only one solution: to sit down on a bench, drink some coffee, eat a pastry and wiggle ones feet.
