Anita took up Papier Mache in 2000, learning at RACC with a tutor who had learnt from the famous Linares family in Mexico.
Their form of Papier Mache sculpture is unique as it is very creative, expressive and full of imagination. She adapted the technique to suit her own style and has had many commissions, including an Alastair Darling sculpture commissioned by Channel 4.
She has been giving workshops in the art in her bijou cottage for 16 years. Classes are small and intimate with refreshments and lots of creativity and laughter. Surrounded by her colourful art, students are inspired by her energy and patience.
Fifteen years working with special needs teens in a mainstream school has inspired her to believe everyone can unleash their hidden creativity.
Students have found the atmosphere huge fun and are always inspired by Anita's positive energy and creativity.
