Since graduation, Anna has created work for most Swedish publications on behalf of the Swedish Art Council, Stockholm County Council, Örebro County Council, the VG Region, Länsförsäkringar and for most municipalities.
In 2009, Anna's artwork Crown Jewels of Småland was chosen to represent Sweden in connection with Sweden's Presidency of the EU Council. The work is now permanently in the Lex Council's EU building in Brussels.
Crown Jewels of Småland are like a big sister to the chandelier we call VALBORG. It is named after Anna's grandmother, who is a great role model and inspiration for Anna.
