She graduated from graphic design in Slovenia at the Academy of Arts and design in 2010. Soon after completing her BA degree she realized she was more curious about illustration than anything else. Anja was further educated at one of the most prestigious universities in its fields, Aalto University of Arts and Design in Helsinki, Finland where she focused on illustration. 

People describe her style as a mixture of minimalist design and detailed ink drawing. She prefers the organic use of ink and paper but her work appears in both digital and print media. She loves to work in high contrasts between black and white and finds inspiration in a female subject.
