Biography Back to top

Printed textiles was the beginning for Anna's non theatre work and developed from printing the velvet for the musical, Evita. The love of silks and velvets inspired all things wearable and decoration for interiors so still a vision of decor and costume continued. Direct screen printing with stencils create a painted impression where layers of colour give the vibrant result.

The decor (3 Dimensional) side of theatre started to emerge as stretched textile 'sculptures' work with tension and balance, drawing on themes of acrobats and other magical movements.
