Anna grew up surrounded by art. Her father was an art instructor and painter, her mother a clothing designer; thus paint, clay, fabric, and art talk were always close at hand.
So, it was natural for Anna to choose college study at Atelier Lack, a private fine arts school. This classical training was followed by two decades of easel painting and experience with sculpting, ceramics, beadwork, and textiles.
Fast forward to the present and VanDemark Designs is the result. Anna's love of color, pattern, and nature are reflected in all her beadwork, textile, and photography creations.
"Living creatively, one day at a time", that's Anna's motto!
