In her twenties she traveled with her motorcycle around Europe , especial Spain, France, Italy and England . Seeing different countries , cities and meeting new people influenced her in her profession and taught her to look closely and find beauty in everyday things.
Growing up with a painting father, Anja grabbed the paintbrush the minute she could walk. She got a scholarship at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg (HFBK Hamburg) = University of fine Arts in Hamburg, but due to a family tragedy she had to step away from a career at the arts and work in a Cosmetic laser and Surgery Center to support her family.
