Anna works cross disciplines in a practice-based way and teaches part time on the BA (Hons) Jewellery and Objects course at the School of Jewellery.

Originally from the South of Germany, Anna apprentice trained with a Master Goldsmiths, gained a BA (Hons) First Class Degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing from the School of Jewellery and completed a Master of Fine Art Degree at the School of Art, Birmingham City University in 2013.

Simplicity of form and attention to subtle details characterize her jewellery, objects, tableware and sculptures. Art and architecture inspire her work as much as the desire to explore materials and concepts. The work is diverse and multi-layered, utilizing Gold & Metalworking techniques to investigate formal concerns of geometric structures, space and layering, while conceptual thinking questions the transformation of materials and the importance of creative engagement for the individual.

Anna has worked on a range of projects, spanning from Church ware to trophies for the Institute of Directors and from brooches, wedding and engagement rings to functional table ware and sculptures. She exhibits internationally and her work is represented in Birmingham’s St. Philips Cathedral, The New College in Oxford, the Jewellery Quarter Museum, the Grassi Museum in Leipzig, Germany, the Goldsmiths Contemporary Silver Collection in London and in private collections.

Anna is a scholar of the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
