Ann Wood

Wow! I came across Miss Wood's work today and I LOVE it! Such amazing talent with a needle, fabric, glue and paper! I love the whimsy, haunting and woodsy feeling of it all, not to mention the pirate ships! Most of it inspired and created with found and salvaged materials, many of them vintage or antique garments.

"There is a kind of affection and tenderness in the re-use and re-purposing of things that were once personal and perhaps treasured possessions. Much of my inspiration comes from these materials as well as from many of the ideas I have been infatuated with my whole life : smallness, intricacies, miniaturization, collections, repetition; lost or abandoned things discovered and rescued; the idea of haunted and enchanted places, things and creatures; the setting of a tiny stage."
