Her creative endeavors started at the age of three, when she graffitied her name on the side of her mattress with a red Sanford permanent marker. She has been creating ever since. Anna is a cross-pollinator. Her creative and professional work over the last 18 years have crossed many different artistic genres encompassing more than these labels we have given them: dance/movement arts, visual art, and design. Throughout it all, observer, educator and maker have been constants.
