Welcome to Anam Studios. I am a "purveyor of ephemera and bagatelle". Trifles. Little things. A little of this, a little of that. Here today, gone tomorrow. In other words, a fancy way of saying 'a jack of all trades'.
While taking a bit of a sabbatical from the rat race, I decided to do the things I already did for fun, for myself, for friends... only now, do it for money. Well, hopefully for money!
I am an artist. When I started kindergarten, I was confused at first when I saw the other kids drawing stick figures. Was that how they saw other people? I had not realized, until that point, at the ripe old age of four, that being able to draw was something special. It was then I decided I was an artist. I paint. One day I decided if I could paint a picture, it would be easy to paint a wall (and I couldn't afford to hire a painter). So now I paint walls too. In all sorts of ways. And design rooms around them. Designing websites was a natural transition when I got my first computer (that is why every page within this site is different, no one theme, so you can see all sorts of examples). I sculpt. And that turned to doll making at a time I was short of space. Many of my talents were only discovered when need forced the discovery (knitting, sewing, cooking...). So look through the site and decide if you need the services of a "purveyor of ephemera and bagatelle".
