In 1987, she enrolled in Belgium’s prestigious Higher Institute for Art Education where she earned a Master’s of Fine Arts in Painting. In 2003, Anja relocated to Los Angeles, where she now concentrates on playful figurative paintings that combine a European sense of high fashion with an American sense of wonder.

Anja’s work currently hangs in galleries alongside Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Banksy & Basquiat. Additionally, she’s shown with Shepard Fairey, Retna, Damien Hirst, Chuck Close and Victoria’s Secret fashion photographer Russell James.
