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. She glues additional paper layers, designing and cutting as she goes.  The process lets Anna infuse each piece with great detail, dimension, and texture.

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."
