A multifaceted artist, Anne Marie was born and raised on the North Shore and has worked in photography, watercolour, oil painting and drawing most of her life. She evolved into folk arts, sewing, knitting, quilting, restoring old furniture and basketry. Basketry is still a major focus. She is a member of the British Basketmakers’ Association, the Salt Spring Island Basketry Guild and a Vancouver-based Basketmakers group. Anne Marie continues to work in Basketry in more non-traditional ways. During the past three years she has been exploring acrylic painting and collage work. What gives her joy in her life is her artistic expression, and she endeavours to express it in everything she does from painting, basketry, gardening, to baking.
