Inspired by her Norwegian and Polish heritage, East London print designer Anja Jane’s creations add a folksy charm to mantles and walls.
Bridging illustration with fashion and lifestyle design, she started her design life in fashion print studios in New York and in 2006 started creating artwork and prints.
Anja Jane divides her time between the continued demand for commissioned textile fashion prints and further developing and screen printing her private work and product range.
