Acrylic painting titled “Viva La Vida Loca” inspired by Frida Kahlo.

Ships From: United Kingdom (UK)

“Viva La Vida Loca” is based on Frida Kahlo’s work and I added “Loca” because life can feel a bit mad these days.
Painted using acrylic paints on canvas board and trimmed with thin wood strips as a “sort of frame”, this is ideal for areas where a deeper frame would be intrusive.  Perfect for hallways or in caravans/campers.  It measures a neat 15cm by 15cm (6″ x 6″) and the pen is shown in one of the photos for scale.

I can post this within the UK and will also post internationally, but cannot know and am not responsible for any custom charges it may incur.

I, Stefanie, was born in Germany, grew up in South India on an environmental rehabilitation project, and now live in the Scottish Borders with my family.

I am greatly motivated by nature and the continuity principle and, thus, I enjoy working with the raw material, following through from beginning to finished piece- shaping and transforming materials to give them new life and purpose. To me respect and an understanding for the materials and their original creators are essential to avoid compromising the materials’ own qualities.

Colour also play a key role with earthy tones and bright jewel-like colours evoking memories of my childhood spent in the splendour of India. With a keen interest in aesthetics and functionality with my materials sources in a sustainable manner, I create exclusive one-off pieces of “practical” textile art and furniture which aim to enhance life.

To me the purpose of an item is its most fundamental quality. Combine this with aesthetically pleasing design, and you have my idea of perfection.

To this end I launched Annasach in 1998, producing environmentally friendly interior accessories ranging from 100% recycled wool knit cushions and throws to furniture made from wind-felled wood. I also continue to offer my services as a designer through Von Damm Designs, working with a number of clients ranging from high street stores to museums and councils alongside my private clients.

Privacy Policy

I only use details you share with me for your order and do not store them as I do not contact buyers for any other reason.

Shipping Policy

Post-able items will be carefully packaged with recycled packaging as part of my ethos to reuse and recycle wherever possible. It may not look pretty, but it does the job well. I generally use Royal Mail's Tracked 48 within the UK and charge only what Royal Mail, themselves, charge. Note that I am happy to post outwith the UK (please contact me for an up-to-date postage fee to your country), but am not responsible for any custom charges which might be incurred.

My larger non-post-able items such as large canvases and furniture would need to be collected, either in person or by a courier of your choice. If you are getting a courier to collect, make sure that they are versed in handling antiques and art, as not all couriers are equal and the furniture will not be packaged (I do, however, wrap the large non-post-able canvases) for them.
