Your teachers:



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.



My name is Nuneka, and I’m a mixed media artist and product designer from Madrid, Spain. I’ve been teaching classes since 2018 and have turned my passion for mixed media into my full-time job. Since 2021, I’ve designed Colors for Lindy’s Gang, and I’ve also created products for other brands such as The Dusty Attic, Funky Fossil, and AB Studio.

Photography was my first artistic love; landscapes and all kinds of living beings showcased the beauty of our world. Composition, light, and precision come naturally to me. I initially began creating travel journals to preserve photos and memories from my trips, and in my search for new materials and techniques for these journals, I discovered mixed media. My passion for knowledge knows no limits, and I am always seeking ways to integrate new things I learn into my artwork.

My works are characterized by cleanliness, a keen sense of color and composition, and a special eye for detail. I still love to explore, which leads me to various kinds of projects, but they all share a common thread: storytelling, much like photography. In my classes, I help you discover the storyteller within, providing you with the tools and techniques you need to infuse meaning and purpose into all your projects.
