“I’ve been making figures for years now out of issues I discover within the woods,” stated Anne. “My objective in sharing them is to encourage others to have a brand new perspective on their environment after they take a stroll.”
In specific, these figures resonate with the youngest viewers: “Children have taken to this very effectively. An instance is once I see a stick that I believe appears to be like like a pair of legs and I ask them what they see,” Anne explains. “I get some very fascinating responses. I could also be opening their eyes however they open mine as effectively. I hope that after seeing my creations adults, too, will begin taking one other go searching them.”
