Anne Heinrichs

Fiber and Mixed Media Art

My work is a mixture of spirituality and a bit of whimsy. I am inspired by texture, the interplay of deep, rich colors and symbolism.

My primary medium is handmade paper and collage. The poem by Sandy Berna is exactly the way I feel about papermaking, then I add found objects.

I have been making paper for 10 years. I received my Bachelors in Art from San Jose State University with an emphasis in Fibers and Textiles.

I create art to learn about myself. To pull from my dreams and hopes the stories that are inside of me. As I start to cut, tear, blend up paper pulp, mix together paints and pull together the found objects that I have been collecting I feel connected to the earth and my spirituality. I love abstract design with a hint of the organic world. 

"There is poetry in the papermaking process and a spiritual attraction to paper itself. To form a sheet of paper by hand stirs and preserves ancient connections with our past. Handmade paper strikes a delicate balance between strength and fragility, purpose and beauty. Plant fibers can be molded and transformed by a moment’s gesture. That gesture lives beyond the present and holds meaning beyond the obvious. Making paper means holding the earth closer. The papermaker works with plant fibers, reforming them into paper, touching gardens, fields, oceans and beaches. But the petals, leaves and seeds, too, have their say. They contribute texture, their seasonal palette, and even their scent. Hand papermaking is a conversation between humans and the botanicals of land and water. We civilize each other. Why do I make paper? It is the best way I have found to enter the timeless dialogue with the natural world, with tradition and with craft." – Sandy Berna
