Lynda Turnbull: Anna, You are a fabulous teacher. You have explained very well and never patronising. Thank you and I look forward to more online classes.
Best wishes, Lynda xxx
Peggy Snodgrass: Anna, thank you so very much for this online class. I have been wanting to take one of your classes forever, but it's rare that you are in this area of the eastern US.
My first attempt has been completed and more are to come in the very near future. You are a wonderful, teacher who explained each step in the best possible way. The class helped me overcome my fears or should I say reluctance to try the techniques.
Thank you again for all the inspiration and hope that many more classes will follow.
My name is Anna Dabrowska, also known as Finnabair. I was born in Warsaw, Poland, now I live in Ireland with my husband, Andrzej and my pets.
I'm a woman of many interests: a mixed media artist, art journaler and designer who loves new challenges, experiments and developing new techniques and skills.
I've been creating since 2007, started scrapbooking in 2008-2009 and mixed-media in 2009 when I got totally addicted.
My projects are texture and art medium-based: I make paper and canvas layouts, collages and altered art, tags, journal pages – and many more. I believe in power of recycling and up-cycling and just adore texture, paints of any kind and flea market supplies. Freedom, embracing creativity and being true to your inner voice is my main source of inspiration and creative energy.
I'm a full time designer and artist and as an experienced travelling teacher I offer a range of my own mixed media-based classes in collage, artistic scrapbooking, art journalling and more. I truly enjoy teaching and during my classes I focus not only on showing techniques, ideas and tricks but also I try to spread my love and enthusiasm for arts and crafts as I believe in therapeutic and liberating power of creativity.
