Finnabair Art Studio is a project that I had on my mind for years, but there was never really a good moment to start it. In the end, the pandemic turned my creative and professional life upside down and changed my dynamic completely – and step by step, my plans and dreams are coming true! Finnabair Art Studio is a new home for my online classes – longer and shorter projects, small and large. In the future, Ihope to add more options for you: live events, collaborative projects, guest designer classes, mini class bundles... and some free offerings as well!
And here we are…
This Mini Class is the first FREE offering I’ve got for you – and it is also the first one I released for my Patrons through my Patreon subscription almost 2 years ago. (patreon link)
In the future you can expect more of the similar MINI classes in here, offered in very attractive prices. These are step-by-step videos in spoken english with english subtitles, usually 25 to 45 minutes long. Each Mini Class will come with a full product list and a short description.
In the coming months I’m planning to release FREE Mini Classes as well, so if you don’t want to miss any of my coming events: Classes, Minis, Free Minis and more – subscribe to our newsletter now! We promise not to spam you with unnecessary emails, just the good stuff from time to time!
Moonlight – mixed-media panel
“Moonlight” – Shaker Box Panel is a small, fun project you can try to do no matter how advanced you are. Short product list, versatile design and many ways of customizing the project – by changing the colours, elements, orientation of the design – this mini collage is a great start for trying the 3D concept of art. You can use your favourite embellishments, findings or chipboards – it is all going to work! Would you like to try some other colour palettes? Sure! Just dive into it and have some creative fun, there are so many ways of making a bit of mixed-media magic happen!

You might know me as Finnabair, but my real name is Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka, and I’m a mixed-media artist, teacher, coach and product designer.
Transforming and upcycling everyday objects is the cornerstone of my craft; to make this “casual magic” possible for everyone, I develop approachable techniques for all skill levels. Between textures and paint, my love for dimensional artwork shaped my distinctive style. Mix in expressive freedom, awakening a creative spark each person holds inside, and therapeutic, releasing powers of art, and you’ll have a picture of my core values.
What had started as a hobby, in 2011 transformed into teaching in-person mixed media classes with immediate success. In 2013, I established a long-term relationship with one of the top craft suppliers worldwide, Prima Marketing; since then, I have counted myself among the most active and best-known product designers in the mixed-media world. The products I come up withstand out thanks to their distinctive style, which is unique to my brand, and blur the line between craft supplies, home décor, and fine art.
After over ten years on the market, I’m one of the most recognizable and experienced professional teachers in my field. My classes are in great demand, and I continuously strive to deliver the best possible experience and quality to my students. Being able to say that I successfully turned my passion into a full-time job is an incredible feeling.
My mission? To continue this magical, artistic journey, and guide, teach and encourage as many creative souls as I can on their path of self-discovery.
Art is always the Answer.
