Instructor Anne Kelly is a textile artist who works with recycled fabric, paper and notions, together with stitching, collage and photographic processes to craft what have been described as “small worlds.” Her inspirations come mainly from folk art and textiles. Often a small scrap or remnant will inspire a whole piece. The subject matter for her current work in layered mixed media was originally botanical but developed into larger more narrative pieces. Collaborations with other artists are an also important aspect of Kelly’s work examples of which can be found on her website at www.annekellytextiles.com
