Biography



Annika Farmer
 
 
Art has always been a big part of my life, I paint the beauty I see in my life and in my imagination, and I hope to bring some joy to those who view my paintings.
I love painting bright colorful watercolors, and experimenting on different surfaces such as Yupo and Clayboard in addition to regular watercolor paper and gesso covered paper.
 
I was born in Dalarna Sweden, where two of Sweden’s most famous artists are from, Anders Zorn and Carl Larsson. I remember visiting the places where they had lived and worked. Seeing their artwork was very inspiring to me then, and still is.
 
I came to Texas when I was 14 years old, and fell in love with the friendly people and the big beautiful skies. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of Houston, and a Masters degree in Humanities from University of Houston Clear Lake. 
 
Some of my art related work experience include working as a surface designer of wall covering and fabrics, teaching art, and organizing art festivals and workshops, in addition to serving on the City of Mentor Community arts Commission before moving back to Texas.
 
I have been fortunate to be included in many local, regional, national and international juried shows, and won many awards, including Best of Show and First place awards. My artwork has also been included in numerous publications including The Best Of Watercolor Splash 18.
