Click for larger view
Anne Mayer Hesse has been working in mixed media, doll making, weaving, basket making, beading, and fibers since the mid 1970s. She often combines different disciplines to create outrageous new work.

Annie has won numerous awards for her creations at art festivals throughout the country. She has been written up many times in newspaper and magazine articles, has been featured in seven different books on doll-making, and has twice been invited to participate in the White House Christmas Collection of Crafts. In 2007, Annie wrote a chapter on bead embroidery for the book, “Beading for Cloth Dolls”.

She teaches throughout the United States, has twice taught in Australia, and in Canada. Her classes often resound with giggles and laughter and the creations produced in her classroom are all unique and one-of-a-kind. As a process instructor, as opposed to a project oriented teacher, Anne urges her students to listen to their own voices and to use her techniques in projects that will push them in their own special directions.
