After initially training in applied arts and architecture, Anna Normand went on to study fashion design at the Ecole des Art Décoratifs de Paris. After graduating, Anna started an accessories business, launching her Anka Byanka brand of resin jewellery. As she needed to create advertising campaigns for her products, Anna then decided to train as a photo stylist. Finding herself more and more in demand for her skills in this field, she moved into the audiovisual world. When she was an architecture student, Anna fell in love with “paper”, a material she likes to sculpt and work into the scenographies she creates.
