  • The childhood crafts of Anne J. Steves, as an immigrant to Canada from Wales, continue to influence her practice. Embroidery, knitting, string games, storytelling and handwriting all share a repetitive quality that binds people to place. She is interested in the ways that re-learning and re-telling can reveal variation while providing a sense of stability in a constantly shifting world.
