Born and educated in Germany, Anna Hergert was exposed to fiber art at an early age. Handwork was a regular part of the weekly school curriculum and her passion for art and textiles became a lifelong pursuit and eventually led to obtaining Diplomas in Art, Design, Contemporary Embroidery as well as Patchwork and Quilting from London City & Guilds.
This strong focus on the arts makes Anna a passionate artist, teacher, lecturer and writer. In 2001 she committed to establishing herself as a full time professional artist. She began exhibiting her textile art in 2003. Venues include Korea, the US, Germany, Austria, and across Canada. Commissions can be located in Canadian, US and European homes and public spaces.
In 2007 Anna and her husband moved to rural Saskatchewan where they make their home north of Moose Jaw at Buffalo Pound Lake. When she is not traveling to lecture or teach Anna creates art and teaches from her dream studio overlooking the breath taking scenery that serves as constant source of inspiration.
