Anna-Lena Cäcilia



Anna-Lena is a figurative sculptor who lives and works in Florence, Italy.


Anna-Lena Cäcilia (b. 1997,) grew close to Hallein, an Austrian city in the foothills of the Alps with a long tradition of wood-carving sculpture. There, Anna-Lena began training in sculpture at just 14 years old, studying under Josef Zenzmaier and later Johanna Schwaiger. Anna-Lena has collaborated with local art platforms in Hallein, such as the Galerie Schloss Wiespach residency where she has worked with internationally renowned artists such as Grzegoz Gwiada.


In 2016, Anna-Lena moved to Italy to begin a three-year academic training in figurative sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art. Already in her second year, Anna-Lena was awarded both the ‘Best Sculpture of the Year’ and ‘Best Drawing of the Year’ prizes. Upon her graduation in june, she will take the position as a Principal Instructor , almost certainly as the youngest teacher in the history of the Florence Academy of Art. Her work has been internationally recognised by organisations including the Art Renewal Centre (ARC) and The International Arts and Culture Group (TIAC). Her work can be found in private collections in Europe, North America and South Africa.
