Sanna Annukka is a designer and printmaker. Her distinctive style of bold colour and pattern is influenced by her childhood summers spent in northern Finland.
Her memories of camping in the nightless Lapland wilderness, the forests, lakes and wildlife remain a constant inspiration.
In 2008 Sanna became a designer for Marimekko. Her first collection was a celebration of The Kalevala, Finland's national literary epic. This was very appropriate as the Kalevala originates from Karelia where Sanna's grandmother was born.
Sanna's second collection, due to hit the stores Autumn/Winter 2012, reflects the landscapes, architecture and culture of Finland.
Sanna now divides her time between screen-printing at her studio and designing and expanding her product range.
