About

Welcome to my shop!

Hi! I'm Anna.

I live in Portland, Oregon, but grew up in the rural farmland of Southeastern Pennsylvania, where I was heavily influenced by the land and the traditional arts and culture of my Pennsylvania-Dutch community. I've pocketed many life experiences since then, and now find myself here in the Pacific Northwest, where I'm inspired by an entirely new environment.

I've had experience in art of many kinds, but in recent years have focused largely on painting and drawing. Much of my work has a whimsical, wild, and imaginative feel, reflecting a playful and curious take on the world around me. The natural world intrigues me greatly -- flowers, leaves, plants, living things of all kinds. Several years ago, I lived briefly on a farm outside of Eugene, OR, and chickens and birds have popped in and out of my work ever since.

I'm also quite influenced by the artwork of my grandmother, who taught me the traditional Pennsylvania-Dutch folk art of fraktur as a child. Whether traditional or not, my birds and flowers are often gestures in that direction. Though my personal fraktur work of late has been focused on imagery, fraktur traditionally contains text and are often gifts to commemorate major milestones in life, such as birth or marriage. I'm always happy to discuss custom fraktur commissions - just drop me a note to see some samples.

If you see something in my shop that you're interested in purchasing in a different size or variation, please let me know! I'm glad to work with you. I'm also always excited to follow new ideas along with you, so don't hesitate to reach out with your crazy request. :)

To see more of what I'm up to on a regular basis, and for latest shop announcements/sales, follow me on Instagram @annatrellaruth.

Thank you so much for looking at my work!

♡ Anna
