Anne has 'wrapped' some of her items ready for Christmas!
Bellows and digital art pieces are available all year online at www.firesidebellows.com or annemills.net - with free delivery to UK addresses. Great for those looking for unique gifts!
Anne has spent many years accepting graphic design briefs for corporate images, logos and merchandise - now she has turned her mind to creating more whimsical and dramatic digital art. Anne finds inspiration all around her - environment, photographs, myths and sometimes just a bit of silliness.
As a counterpoint to computer technology, Anne enjoys the calming wood and leather work in creating hand-crafted bellows. Inspiration comes from the character of the wood, and choosing the leather - then watching as it evolves into a practical fire maker. She says she only started making bellows because she got tired of sticking her head in the fire and blowing!
Anne, as a maker of bellows, is a member of Crafts Council and Heritage Crafts Association. Burford Garden Company feature a selection of her bellows.
