When Annika was six years old the doctor thought she had Lyme Disease. She was losing weight, she stopped growing and her eyes became sensitive to light. Her parents took her to University of Minnesota where doctors told them Annika had a brain tumor on her optic nerve.
“While on the operating table I had a stroke and was paralyzed on my right side. I was told I couldn’t walk again and was fitted for a wheelchair. Through therapy I relearned to walk, talk, eat and do everything with my left hand.”
Annika’s artistic passion is in drawing and painting. The subject matter of her work is eclectic and includes sports, wildlife, plants, and landscapes.
