Anne enjoys exploring new techniques, tools and materials in her work as a textile and fibre
artist. Her work is at times experimental as she works with recycled fabrics and embellishments
which have evolved to become major influences in the development of her floral and abstract

Anne began her second career as a textile and fibre artist in earnest nine years ago after teaching
with the Upper Grand District School Board for thirty-one years. Always eager to learn, Anne
has added a variety of techniques and skills to her quilting repertoire through classes and
workshops over the years. Her work has been influenced by contemporary styles, as well as
updated more traditional approaches. She is most passionate about creating modern crazy
patchwork and thread-painted florals and landscapes. Last year, Anne began teaching classes
in these techniques. You will find that the materials in her artwork are supplemented with all
manners of different sized fabrics, thread, beads, buttons and baubles donated by her friends,
who know her as a collector.

Anne lives in Erin Township with her husband Bruce, her son Brent and two cats.
