Anna is expressing qualities lying within the feminine: a desire for beauty, compassion and hope, expressing fragility, vulnerability and love. These "soft" values are needed now more than ever, and are represented by the material wool. Wool is pre-eminently an organic product that is associated with warmth and a feeling of cherishment, it stimulates the senses. The woolworks invite interaction: people tend to touch them, exploring their relationship to the material and the organic, almost living feel of the works.
