Born in London, Anna attended Central St. Martins School and Glasgow School of Art. Trained in visual communication, she is a self-taught product designer.
Her work also encompasses projects in print, art direction, fashion shows, interiors and set design. This alchemic approach to design led her to launch her Furniture + Fine Objects Collection and she is now represented internationally by a network of design galleries and works with leading interior designers and architects to place her pieces in some of the most prestigious buildings internationally.
She believes strongly that all forms of design should tell a story and that all the disciplines contribute wonderfully to each other and therefore no one area should remain untouched.
Her studio practice, Anna Karlin Furniture + Fine Objects, and Anna Karlin Fine Jewelry, are the result of this sensibility.
Anna currently lives and works in New York, USA.
