Anna Corbasigning booksand Romantic Homes Magazine at Roses & Rust Soirée and Marché du Printempts
Anna says her journey began when
her “flea market collections refused to lay tame” on her studio’s shelves. Her paintings began including paper ephemera
and objects she’d gathered over the years. Love of collage, vintage items beautifully
collected gave birth to her own product line. Her work has been showcased in
specialty boutiques as well as larger emporiums (Anthropologie) across the country.
She is the author of
Doodling in French: How to Draw with Joie de Vivre
Vintage Paper Crafts
Memories of a Lifetime: Alphabets & Ornaments: Artwork for Scrapbooks & Fabric-Transfer Crafts
She has been featured in
Where Women Create: Inspiring Work Spaces of Extraordinary Women
Country Living's Crafting A Business
as well as in this April's issue of Romantic Homes Magazine.
Besides her book projects and travel
to France she has workshops to share her “love of collage using vintage elements.”
She will be signing copies of the April issue of Romantic Homes, as well as her own books
“I prefer naturally-aged pieces most of all. I've been known to bury
things in dirt, leave them out in the rain to be wrinkled, leave them in the
sun to be bleached, throw my ribbons in the bathtub, drain my coffee grounds
over parchment and, of course, dye my tags with leftover tea bags. I also love
the use of melted beeswax as a muted soft patina over general collage
Come to the Soirée Friday April 12, 5-8 pm for an even more relaxed meeting with Anna.
Her books and some Romantic Homes Magazineswill be available to purchase.
