Anja was born and raised in Switzerland. After studying Fine Arts at the École des Beaux Arts du Valais in Sierre, Switzerland, Anja decided to continue her studies abroad. She came to Canada where she studied Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba and obtained a diploma in photography at Red River College.
Anja has made Winnipeg her home ever since and has continued her work as an artist, selling her artwork in Europe and Canada. Her work includes Encaustic painting, illustration, screen printing and sculpture. Over the past year Anja has added designing home goods featuring her illustrations. Her designs are rooted in memories of quality products used by her grandparents in Switzerland. Her home goods include handmade enamel mugs (made in Europe not China), hand printed aprons, tote bags and other textiles. The textiles are made from organic cotton grown and sewn by a coop in India. It is import to Anja to use sustainable quality products to ensure she does her part in protecting nature – her source of inspiration.
