By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Dec 20, 2017 

Anya is internationally published and award winning photo artist from Ukraine now based in New York, USA. As a self-taught artist, she gained all her knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities.

She creates fine art surrealistic female portraits, which became her preferable genre and a hallmark of her work. Installations, costumes, and Photoshop manipulation help her to embody her fantasies into a finished piece of art.

She has been featured on many popular online blogs, like BoredPanda, Petapixel, and My Modern Met.

Teaching conceptual photography is also her passion and as a workshop instructor, she has already taught in different countries all around the world.
