Finnish artist ANNA KLAUS studied painting under different teachers all through the 1970's. She has been drawing and painting semi-professionally since the mid-80's.
In Finland ANNA KLAUS has had a few solo exhibitions and taken part in some group exhibitions, but these have all been inside mainstream art forms.
As a fetish artist, ANNA KLAUS' works have appeared in many central European magazines since 1993.
Her first fetish art solo exhibition was held at the Europerve gala (organized by Demask) in Amsterdam in 1998. Anna's international breakthrough came in 1999 at the First International Fetish Art fair, ArtBizarre 99 (organized by Marquis) in Köln.
With 50 exhibited paintings the Kinky Copenhagen event (organized by Bite The Apple / Manifest) in 2003 was so far the largest showing of ANNA KLAUS' works. From this exhibition some works were acquired by the Copenhagen Museum Erotica.
In 2004 visitors of the all-European netsite voted ANNA KLAUS fetish painter of the year.
In 2005 ANNA KLAUS exhibited at the Fetish Evolution Expo in Ratingen, Germany.
At all of the fetish exhibitions mentioned above, ANNA KLAUS exhibited under the name Anna Kuritus. From the beginning of 2017 she changed her name to ANNA KLAUS.
