Born and educated in Germany, Anna Hergert was exposed to fibre art at an early age. Handwork was a regular part of the weekly school curriculum, and her passion for art and textiles became a lifelong pursuit and eventually led to obtaining Diplomas in Art, Design, Contemporary Embroidery as well as Patchwork and Quilting from London City & Guilds.
This strong focus on the arts makes Anna a passionate artist, teacher, lecturer and writer. In 2001 she committed to establishing herself as a full-time professional artist. She began exhibiting her textile art in 2003. Venues include Korea, the US, Germany, Austria, and across Canada. Commissions can be located in Canadian, US and European homes and public spaces.
In 2007 Anna and her husband moved to rural Saskatchewan where they currently make their home north of Moose Jaw at Buffalo Pound Lake. When she is not travelling to lecture or teach Anna creates and writes in her dream studio overlooking the breath-taking scenery that serves as a constant source of inspiration.
In 2017 Anna made the decision to retreat to the studio to explore new ideas and follow her inspiration to ensure she can inspire others in the future. Her book “Inspiration Kantha” was published in 2018 by Schiffer Publications. These days Anna is again accepting invitations to teach in Canada. This blog will continue to chronicle her thoughts, inspiration, journal entries and images of her environment and new work. The calendar will be updated regularly.
This blog began as a continuation of an earlier blog version on Anna’s website. That website was closed in July 2016. This blog has proven to be a better vehicle of communication.
Inquiries and questions are most welcome. Please email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments and observations are very much encouraged. Every effort will be made to answer questions in an efficient and timely manner.
