Inspired by the beauty of arctic nature.... After spending a month during the arctic polar night on Svalbard, Anja was inspired to start painting arctic scenery and wildlife. Amost all paintings are based on and inspired by hikes, trips and excursions in the arctic nature, as well in the north of Norway as on Svalbard. Now, her paintings are for sale on several places in Norway and on Svalbard. And of course you can order online: contact Anja.
In 2009 Anja opened her own gallery in the south of The Netherlands. In the same period Anja exposed her paintings in the Gallery Solvsten Longyearbyen, the northernmost gallery in the world! The collection consisted of realistic paintings (acryl on canvas), inspired by the beautifull nature of Svalbard. Except in her own gallery and in Solvsten, Anja started to sell in the Airshipmuseum Spitsbergen. Since than Anja is spending each year about two months on Svalbard, taking pictures during several trips, to get inspired and to create several paintings. From 2012 Anja specialized herself in miniature paintings.
