ABOUT ANNE ANDERSSON
Born in Sweden, Andersson first worked as an illustrator and painter while completing studies for a degree in Science. Finding her true calling in art, she eventually graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With a deep passion for wild animals facing diminishing habitats and decreasing populations, Anne mixed her diverse talents with this awareness to create a homage to wild animals that unites both art and nature.
Andersson’s realistic life-size animals are made using Sisal fiber extracts from Agave plants. Her use of sculpted clay for the rougher details such as noses and claws, with hand-painted fire glassed eyes, combined with her talents in weaving unite to bring her remarkable creations to life with masterful attention to the smallest, most telling details. With these techniques, Anne has met with great success exhibiting in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.
