Anne is from the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia where she works in her studio designing and teaching baskets. She was a production basket maker for many years, and she brings those skills into each basket that she teaches. Ribbed basketry is her specialty, and some of her baskets have taken on a sculptural perspective in recent years. Anne has participated in many basketry exhibits, shows, and has won many awards for her work. She is a member of the National Basketry Organization. She has taught on 3 basketry cruises, teaches basketry widely and lectures about the woven form. She is in her 42 nd year of weaving which still fascinates her. She is soon to have her first book, “Ribbed Basketry: Traditional to Contemporary”, in print. This coming fall will mark her 34 th year of participation in the annual Over the Mountain Studio Tour. Her goal is to make each student’s class a successful one.
