About the Author
Anna was born in Saint Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities
in Russia. This gorgeous city sits on five islands. There are 500
bridges over canals and rivers, beautiful cathedrals, churches,
parks and gardens. The "white" summer nights are very
special - the sun does not go down, and the sunset turns into sunrise.
Anna found her talent at a very young age. When she was only eight
years old, she started to paint watercolor copies of classic reproductions.
Her paintings were naive, but colorful. She like to paint swans
in the lake and make furniture for her dolls from paper scraps of
fabric, gluing them together. After high school, she wanted to be
either an art teacher or a doctor, but the urge to create remained
Upon graduating from college, she taught art to first through eighth
grade students, acted as a stage and costumes decorator at the Kirov
Theater of Opera and Ballet, and as a freelancer, knitting and designing
Ann loves to work with textiles, threads, and other fiber media.
She has a passion for creating art quilts. She has developed a few
new techniques; some of them are presented in this book, and she
is saving others for future books.
In 1995, she traveled to the United States to visit her sister
and was lucky enough to obtain a green card and the absolute freedom
and subsequent inspiration that came with it.
