About me

My name is Anna Dabrowska, also known as Finnabair (pronounced Finavar). I was born in Warsaw, Poland, now I live in Ireland.

 I'm a woman of many interests: a mixed media artist, scrapbooker and art journaler who loves new challenges, experiments and developing new techniques and skills. I've been creating since 2007, started scrapbooking in 2008-2009 and mixed-media in 2009 when I got totally addicted.
 My projects are mostly media-based: I make paper and canvas layouts, collages and altered art, tags, journal pages – and many more. I believe in power of recycling and upcycling and just adore texture, paints of any kind and flea market supplies. Freedom, embracing creativity and being true to your inner voice is my main source of inspiration and creative energy. 
I'm a full time designer and artist and as an experienced traveling teacher I offer a range of my own mixed media-based classes in collage, scrapbooking, art jouraling and more. I create as a freelance designer for scrapbooking magazines (from Russia, Sweden, USA, Great Britain, Germany and France) and international shops. I design projects, products and work with such international brands as Prima Marketing (design team member since 2011 and product designer since 2013) and 7 Dots Studio ( product designer since 2011).
