Anne J. Steves
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.
