Textile collaged wall hangings in community settings created with involvement of service users in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire
“I have been privileged to work with Anna for many years. She is a wonderfully imaginative artist and has a natural, easy way of connecting with the participants in our art and music projects with older clients with various needs.
I would heartily recommend her for any community arts projects. She has a warm and gentle approach to this very important work and has produced stunning results with all the participants”.
Arne Richards, Director Oxford Concert Party
