hello I am anna, welcome to my little shop.
I am an Australian artist and illustrator currently living in Athens, Greece. I have a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Arts, majoring in printmaking and with a minor in painting. I have since completed a Certificate IV in Jewellery Design and Manufacture.
My inspiration is a constant tug of war between Australiana and European imagery, with a historical, folkish and sciency lean.
You'll find in my shop a collection of paper goods, fabric and accessories featuring my designs.

My work is also available in the real world, for a list of the lovely boutiques around the world stocking my work, visit my blog here-

Accepted payment methods
For those new to Etsy, here is a handy guide to the checkout process:
From August 2013 we had a big increase in shipping costs in Greece, some items are effected more than others. If you are looking to purchase multiple items, contact me beforehand as in some cases combined shipping may be more cost effective.
Please make sure that your Etsy and Paypal addresses match. If they do not and I am unable to contact you I will post items to the address given by Etsy.
Most items are sent with regular mail. If you require a shipping upgrade, please contact me for a price.
I now only ship my items to Italy, China and Brazil with registered mail, I'm sorry for the extra price, but I have had a number of missing packages to these countries and this way we can both be certain that they will arrive.
I ship all items purchased the next working day from the day they are purchased- excluding public holidays, strikes & other special circumstances, when they will be sent the following working day.
Usual shipping times in my experience are as follows:
Inside Greece 2-3 working days
Continental Europe 3-5 working days
UK 4-5 working days
and the rest of the world 10-15 working days.
*At Christmas time, the post can run a bit slower due to the rush and bad weather, so from the beginning of December I would recommend allowing an extra week at least for delivery.
These figures are just averages and anomalies do occur. The postal system is a strange creature with an odd sense of humour and I cannot guarantee any item to arrive on any specific day. As soon as teleportation becomes a viable shipping option I will be offering this to all my customers.
In some countries, buyers are subject to customs taxes and duties on items shipped from international locations. I am in no way responsible for these taxes and duties, and they shall be the responsibility of the buyer.
I am very proud to use envelopes for my shipping that are made of recycled paper, high in post consumer waste paper. I also make use of recycled cardboard where possible for items that require extra support.
