Anna makes art as an accomplishment, given her arthritis, with “dreams and hopes” of keeping a roof over her head. Digital copies of her freehand drawings as well as her photography are for sale at reasonable prices here.
We couldn’t pass by this whimsical fairy without purchasing a copy.

"My photography journey started when I planned a trip to London, England. I picked up a camera, and while learning how to use it took way too many pictures. I really enjoyed it, and a love of photography was born. As such, a new chapter of my life began--a chapter that began with a camera, but one that is still being written as I move through a life of photography.
You can find my website here. I hope you enjoy looking at my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them."
Jason has taken photographs for the Cloverdale Reporter and was recently featured in the Maple Ridge News (British Columbia). You can reach Jason through his website for any inquiries into his services.
