About Anna Zakirova
Artist Anna Zakirova has been in love with nature and drawing ever since she was a young girl. When she became an adult, she ventured into a completely different career as a journalist and copywriter; but the urge to make art never left.
Five years ago, she began growing and drying flowers—often taking long walks where she'd pick and then dry the flowers. Interested in how to keep their color and beauty, she started pressing them. From there, she began making pressed flower compositions which allowed her to showcase their delicate features even more.
As her passion for flower pressing grew, her compositions became more complicated and she began selling her one-of-a-kind pieces in stained glass and conventional frames.
