Long ago, in an age before Covid and quarantines, Anna worked as a dresser on operas and a sprinkling of musicals. Things we can all remember if we think hard. Lots of singing very loudly, emoting through synchronized dance, everyday stuff.
Realising the time had come to stop picking up pants and start picking up paints. Swapping Soho for Sussex, Anna now works in an attic to create expressive paintings on canvas and a line of sustainable earrings made out of chickpea and biscuit tins.
Finding beauty in small things and embracing the chaos, is the ethos behind AnnaElwinDesigns on Etsy. Drop by and why not pick something for someone you love.
