Hello, my name is Anna Ryzhova, I'm an artist.

I've been drawing for as long as I remember.

  • In 2010 I graduated with Honours from Moscow Academic Art Lyceum of Russian Academy of Arts (MAHL RAH).
  • In 2016 I graduated from Moscow State Academic Art Institute named after V.I. Surikov (MGAHI imeny Surikova) with a masters degree, getting the highest possible mark for my diploma.
  • I was lucky enough to study at Universität der Künste (UDK) in Berlin in 2015.

  • My work won first prize in a British Council competition in 2015. I'm especially proud that my illustrations were featured into Chelterham Illustration Awards'15 annual and also shown at the exhibition.


I enjoy sketching people and animals. I also do illustrations.

For painting I usually use acrylic colours, although I can do all the traditional techniques, as oil painting and watercolours. 

I love horses, ginger people and Nothern British accents.
