Unlike most pattern artists who work in ink, paint, watercolor, or computer graphics, Anna works exclusively in paper. Wielding her X-acto knife as a pen, she cuts motifs repeatedly into richly colored, textured paper.

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."
