Anne uses simple materials and her hands to create new forms. She has a life long love of making, using basic ‘domestic’ skills of sewing for her family, knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning, plant dyeing, felting, simple book making, stitching, drawing with natural pigments and free form basketry.

Anne has turned her focus to exhibiting her works, with a solo exhibitions at Mundaring Arts Centre in and participates in many group exhibitions.
She has been part of Common Threads Woven Through Community since its inception in 2018 and is currently working with artists to co-host events at the Midland Junction Arts Centre in 2019. Anne is currently Artist in Focus at Midland Junction Arts Centre until 8 June 2019
We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Anne join us to as an advocate and presenter in the Perth Hills as part of our Common Threads Woven Through Community Exhibition.
Common Threads Woven through Community is a week-long community engagement project proudly brought to you directly following the World Fashion Revolution week held in late April each year and happily leads into the local Toodyay Fibre Festival of 2019.
This exhibition includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages. These events are designed for you to leave feeling deeply inspired to become part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
