Hi, my name is Anna and I am an artist from Cornwall. I started my Sketchy Muma drawings back in 2014, shortly after becoming a new mum. It started off as a personal project, but I now produce prints and cards that you can also enjoy in your home, or as a meaningful gift to send to someone. I love making simple observational drawings about family and day to day life, and distilling into words and pictures the precious relationships that make us human.
I have always loved drawing and writing as a way to understand the world. I think there is something so magical about a thought being in your head and then travelling through your body and out onto paper via a humble pen or pencil.
When I became a new mum I often found myself stranded in supermarket car parks whilst my baby napped, so I started to make sketches of my experience of first time motherhood whilst in my car with five free minutes to spare.
I made the drawings as a keepsake for my daughter to document our first years together, however the pictures soon resonated with other new parents and Sketchy Muma really took off.
Several years on, I have had a book published and worked with some fabulous brands and charities.
I still love quietly sitting sketching the funny and poignant things I observe in daily life, I hope you can enjoy my work too!
