    Hello Anna,

    Your work is really wonderful. I pinned some of your artwork on pinterest (siting you as the artist) but if you’d rather I didn’t, please let me know and I will remove them.

    Thank you,

    Nancy

  • Anna, though your drawings are not done realistically, I must tell you
    that they are all amazing, beautiful, and wonderful, and come to life.
    When I look at one picture or image, I am drawn to look at more and
    more. This is how good they are. Each simple line comes to life – you
    are an excellent artist. I am an artist as well and a writer, and a
    philosopher of my own beliefs.

  • Anna, though your artwork is not realistically done, each simple line of
    your work seems to come to life and lures me into wanting to see more
    and more of your work. You are an amazing artist. Your illustrations and ideas definitely captured me. I am an artists myself. I love your work.
