Hi, I'm Anna

I'm a colourful Australian artist.

As Shiny Happy Art, I have been teaching in person since 2011 and online since 2015.

Quite simply, it's my life's mission to share the JOY of drawing and painting and I'm here to help you find a bit of 'happy' through art.

What supplies will you need?

I demonstrate with a variety of blue pens, pencils, felt pens and paints, but every project can be done with any art supply you have.

(And, just quietly, it doesn’t even have to be blue!)
