Anna was born and raised in rural Oregon; she relocated to the Paso area in 2013. Anna spent her childhood enjoying the outdoors- hunting, fishing, clamming, crabbing, camping, hiking and creating art. She has a degree in Psychology and Fine Arts and over 30 years of teaching experience. Her love of the outdoors and fascination with the twilight and evening colors has influenced her work. She is drawn to the elements of magic, spirit, and other dimensions, things we often see with our hearts, souls, and spirits but not necessarily with our eyes. She likes to create fresh landscapes, realities, and feelings of something familiar but at the same time foreign. Anna is trained in painting, ceramics, sculpture, fiber arts and fine craft. She uses mixed media approach to create her mosaics.
