October 1 - November 13, 2021

"The beauty of working with handmade papers is that the inherent variety and beauty of texture help create images that easily imitate nature."

As an artist and collector of papers, Anna uses the finest hand-made, cottage industry papers around the world. She also creates her own surface design and marbled papers. She cuts, tears, and layers papers to create unique pieces of art. Anna works from photographs of local landscapes, studio models, and from her imagination. She has visited cottage industries in paper making in Japan and Italy. While traveling she has collected a vast amount of international papers. Anna is a resident of Montrose, Colorado, and was raised on the Western Slope.
