An has been quilting for more than 30 years. An developed “LifeQuilt” – a contemplative process to convey an individual’s life events with meaning and significance from birth to death. She has taught this class to many people who had limited quilting experience or even those who had no sewing experience with great success!
Believing strongly that creativity is an integral part of being human, she facilitates a 12 session online Creativity Challenge to help people fuel their soul. She also teaches a JOY Greeting Card class – a simple method of spreading joy and creativity one greeting card at a time.
She is a trained facilitator for SoulCollage® – a method of combining images, imagination and intuition for personal clarity and accessing innate wisdom. It uses magazine photos that are easily cut, rearranged and pasted to create collage cards. An regularly leads SoulCollage® workshops.
“To me, making art is as necessary as breathing.”
Although her work has always been largely influenced by a deep sense of the divine and mystery, current works are focusing on Archetypes – that rich language of symbols and story woven across centuries and continents that is embedded in each of us.
An is currently enrolled in Caroline Myss’s Sacred Contracts Professional program studying as a Certified Archetypal Consultant.
Her dream is to coordinate with artists from around the globe to curate a world-wide exhibition of large-scale art that portrays the powerful images of archetypes.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it. Begin it now”
