Anna uses bits and pieces of found cloth, silk, old scraps of fabric, and personal ephemera including the childhood drawings of her two sons to stitch a 'story' together. 

Anna Torma writes "I feel I am a storyteller, using my private diary pages with drawings, text and paintings form both my early experiences in Hungary and my recent life in Canada."

I long to see these works in person and I imagine you would too.
