About The Artist:
When Anja Kooistra immigrated to Canada from The Netherlands in 2000, she brought with her a love of nature and the arts. Fabric sculpting is her passion, and through training and exploration, she has elevated this medium to new levels at Rolling Hills Studio. Her rural home in Sunderland, Ontario provides the perfect backdrop for her creative spirit. She incorporates fabrics and natural materials into her sculptures, such as rocks, wood, bird nests and sheep hair. Anja uses a non-toxic, environmentally friendly fabric hardener to sculpt her large and small figurines, each with a unique personality and an ethereal life force. Her pieces are on display in private homes and gardens around the world, in Canada, the United States, Europe and South America. An enthusiastic and charismatic teacher, Anja also facilitates workshops in her studio so that others can experience the artistic magic that keeps her engaged. Visit Anja virtually at http://rollinghillsstudio.ca.
