Her bond with color is strong, to say the least. Colors are not merely identifiers that help you recognize an object, colors are also a quality of an object that affect how we feel about it. For Anne, colors give a feel-good sensation.

Allthough her focus lies on textiles, she uses several materials to work with. For Silk-ka (flowers) Anne designed and painted the stand walls used at several trade fairs (below), and she also designs moza├»c works. She's used to working with a multitude of clients that offer her new challenges to using color and light  as an infleuntial factor in spaces, with her own style in using color combinations.

Before starting a project, not only the function of a space is considered. Also the people using the space and the design of the space itself are taken into account to acchieve a balanced result. Below you can see the detail put into the large wall covering work 'Optimism Blue'. It's been made of wool, acryl, polyester and cotton using a complicated dubbel-weaving technique.
