    Anna finds inspiration in the various art books she collects. In this case she fell for the graceful curves and goose neck of a bulbous Scandinavian metal pitcher. She rotated the motifs and added lively interior accents, giving this unusual pattern its energy and humor. In caper green/rose pink/beige. As a bonus, the shapes left behind on her cutting mat give Anna instant fodder for new designs. We like to think of it as “recycling by design." Read Less

Unlike most pattern artists who work in ink, paint, watercolor, orcomputer graphics, Anna works exclusively in paper. Wielding her X-actoknife as a pen, she cuts motifs repeatedly into richly colored,textured paper. She glues additional paper layers, designing andcutting as she goes.  The process lets Anna infuse each piece withgreat detail, dimension, and texture. As a bonus, the shapes left behind on her cutting mat give Anna instantfodder for new designs.  We like to think of it as “recycling bydesign."
