    A fan of both the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements, Anna cut motifs that celebrated both styles' sinuous elegance. The pattern's petal- and wing-like shapes appear to fly in tandem. Available in avocado/lavender and light gray/high noon yellows. As a bonus, the shapes left behind on her cutting mat give Anna instant fodder for new designs.

Pattern in Flight

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."
