So, who is Anna Murgia? I am an illustrator, artist, graphic designer, project manager, production coordinator and networker in Svedala, Sweden.
After growing up in a small village called Löddeköpinge in the south of Sweden, I was eager to see what the world had to offer. I spent one year in Texas, USA, as an exchange student, and one year as an nanny i Brussels, Belgium before it was time for two years of university studies in England.
After working for an advertising agency in the dark forests of Småland, my heritage called me back to where I came from, Skåne! I settled in Malmö and met the man of my dreams (half Italian-half Swedish) at work! He also made me fall in love with what is now my second home – Sardinia! Our first home is in Svedala outside of Malmö, and this is where we live in a great house, with our two wonderful kids!
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. After high school I studied one year at Hässleholm’s Art School in Skåne, Sweden, but I also have a BSc in Business Management from University of Hull, England.
With this mix of education and several years of experience, in the media business, I started my own illustration agency, Illustra Murgia in 2005. In 2011 I changed names on my company and split the business in two, in order to clearer define what it is I do for my wonderful customers.
So now I run Genea Murgia for hand-painted family trees and genealogical illustrations for people and companies all over the world, and Murgia Grafica for graphic production for companies in southern Sweden!

If you have heard my name in other circumstances during the last few years I wouldn’t be too surprised. 🙂 I am an active networker in and around Svedala. I was in the parent-teacher group at Erlandsdals Förskola, and the same at Roslättskolan in Svedala. I am a member of Svedala-Sturup Rotary Club, were I was the president 2012-2013. I have been the chairman of Erlandsdals Samfällighetsförening, that runs Erlandsdalsgården in Svedala. My latest assignments are to be the chairman of Nätverk Svedala Ekonomisk Förening, a network of small companies in Svedala, working for more exchange of experiences and business within Svedala, and project manager for SvedalaMässan. 🙂
