Artist of the Day…Sanna Annukka

Today’s artist is a fun one, Sanna Annukka. I stumbled across her work while perusing various interior design blogs, and I was really happy to see how neat her woodblock inspired prints are. I love her use of color as well.

This Finnish/English illustrator has done work for Marimekko, Vogue, and she’s also created prints for album covers and press kits. She says a lot of her inspiration is drawn from folklore, nature, and childhood memories. I can definitely see that in her prints because a lot of them remind me of Russian patterns.

Yep…one of these prints would be excellent in my apartment…definitely check out Annukka’s blog for some more great stuff!
