Color and fiber have influenced Anna since her toddler years. Anna resides in West Vancouver, BC where she instructs fabric arts, quilting and photo transfer classes at art galleries and quilting guilds. She has served on the Executive on several BC Quilting Guilds. As a frequent world traveler, it is her mission to search out new textiles and innovative fabric art techniques to complement her overflowing fabric and embellishment library.
She and her husband, David, a professional travel photographer, travel writer and guest lecturer always have their bags and cameras packed for their next travel adventure. When Anna added photography to her many passions it was only time until she needed to preserve her special photos and works of art into fabric photo creations.
Anna has a passion for color and creating new designs from world fabrics gathered in her travels, She constantly researches and records her discoveries whether it be in the jungles of South America, markets of South East Asia, deserts of Africa or the galleries of Europe. She has lectured on exotic fabrics of the World on cruise ships in 6 continents and continues to teach fabric arts and share her passion when she is at home. Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally in art galleries, offices, stores and museums.
Anna particularly enjoys the people she has met while pursuing her passion. With colorful travel tales and fabric samples she is bound to entertain, inform and inspire you with enthusiasm and a sense of humor. Anna’s motto is to live each day to the fullest, just like her overflowing fabric studio. Photo of Anna courtesy Joanne Gowing
