ANNA TURNBULL

Anna, a fibre artist, gets her inspiration from the north Northumberland landscape, where she lives and works. She says she feels connected to her rural surroundings, referencing the wildlife , organic forms, rich colours and textures of nature in her willow and felt pieces.

Anna, who has a degree in fine art, is driven by a passion for her materials, even sustainably growing her own willow, which is naturally-coloured. 

Her life-like willow sculptures start with drawings, observations of movement, shapes, forms, the flow of muscles, directions, lines and tension.  She uses traditional basketry techniques for her willow vessels and experiments with shape and form for her felt creations.

After following her own creative journey as a teacher, she

set up Biteabout Arts in 2011, where she now works as a freelance artist, selling her work, offering a bespoke service and teaching others how to work with these materials. To find out more contact her at annaturnbull@ymail.com or visit her at:
