Following a training in ceramics and a variety of jobs Anna launched her online shop The Speculating Rook in 2013. Specialising in free machine embroidery she uses vintage wool blankets, linen, sari silk and other fabrics that catch her eye and imagination to create a range of cushions, lampshades and small bags.
All designs originate from Anna’s sketchbooks and take their inspiration from the flora and fauna of the East Anglian landscape in which she lives.
Commissions are considered, and visitors to her studio in Little Downham are welcome.
