Touch the wood and leather of hand-crafted bellows. Be touched by the whimsy and imagination of digital art...
Anne has spent some 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!
When in need of an escape (when time permits!) she takes on the challenging, but absorbing and gentle world of watercolours.
This combination of artist and artisan gives Anne’s art its unique character.
