My name is Anna and I live in Stockholm, Sweden. I have no formal art training at all so this is the first time I’m in a learning environment like this.
I used to draw and paint all the time as I grew up but I was talked out of making it a career. So for many years I was a good girl and worked in an office, renovated an old house, raised two daughters and spent no time at all on art. When the girls were grown and moved out to build their own lives I decided to take up art again. To get started I joined a few online classes and for the last couple of years I have been trying different media and sort of testing the waters to see where I want to go with it.
My favorite media so far has been watercolor and colored pencils. Though I love color I realized I lack the foundation of drawing and being able to see the form and values of a motif. So I am very happy to be here and so far I am very pleased with how everything is set up here at DTO.
