Hi! I'm Anna. The illustrator and owner behind Anna Grunduls Design. What is it that I do? It all starts with adult coloring pages. I illustrate them with very intricate details and than use the artworks to create fun stationery. My paper goods are very unique in the way that everything can be colored in! Posters, stickers, cards, even adhesive tapes!
What made you decide to start the business?
I was commissioned by an Australian publisher to illustrate an adult coloring book and I had a ton of fun with it. I've always loved making intricate art. When I got the book, I felt it could be much more. I started experimenting with printing the illustrations on other mediums and in various sizes. That's how I came up with the idea to start a business of my own and let the coloring pages out of the books.
What is the most rewarding part of what you do?
The moment my customers tag me in their finished coloring pages. I love seeing the illustrations colored and I'm always impressed by how many beautiful interpretations of the same picture are even possible! Although, there are many more rewarding moments. I believe that every order or email sign up is a good reason for a happy dance :)
Describe what impact you want to make because of your efforts?
My main goal is to give my customers a daily boost of creativity. I strongly believe that creative activities make us happier. It's actually scientifically proven! I want to bring joy into people's lives and give them more opportunities to express themselves artistically.
Who are you seeking to connect with, in your area, or in the greater community?
I'm always looking to connect with fellow entrepreneurs worldwide because we're all in this together. If we support each other and share our knowledge, we can all succeed. I'm also looking for influencers and journalists who would like to provide a creativity boost for their audience. I'd be happy to share my expertise or skills.
