In her talk, Anna revealed she suffers from a condition whereby background and ambient noise is amplified and conflicts with what she can hear in her immediate environment. Her world is full of noise, which makes her stressed, so she deliberately seeks quiet and solitude, with moments of silence.
Anna recently had a solo show at the Ebeltoft Glass Museum, Denmark and is currently working on a show in Sweden. Her work is already in German, Danish, Japanese and American collections. She seems happy to continue to break all the rules, to create original installations with meaningful narrative, and her reputation as a glass artist of international standing is growing. She is definitely one to watch.
