Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish author who is best remembered for his literary fairy tales.
British/Finnish artist Sanna Annukka studied at the University of Brighton, where she discovered a passion for printmaking which has informed much of her subsequent practice. In addition, childhood summers spent north of the arctic circle instilled a love and reverence for the rawness of the natural world which is an ever present force in her work.
In 2008 Sanna joined the roster of designers for Finnish textile and fashion brand Marimekko, designing patterns for interiors and homeware. The same year she was invited by the Finnish Design Museum to create huge textile wall hangings for their exhibition ‘FennoFolk - a collection of new nordic oddity.’
