Anna Grist, Beamsville Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement In frustration over my imminent failure, I drew a gravestone (with my name and the date of the exam on it) and cemetery on my last math exam in high school. When I received just enough 'bonus' marks for the drawing (from a teacher with a sense of humour) to allow me to actually pass the exam, I knew art was what I was going to pursue in some form in my future. So from interest to hobby to education to career... I have graduated with an Honours Diploma in Graphic Design from Mohawk College in Ontario, worked as a freelance graphic designer and newspaper go-to graphics person & ad designer in the Niagara Region, gained experience while travelling worldwide as a photographer and artist, and simply learned how to appreciate true design and art in the places I have seen. Please feel free to visit my blog, www.annaink.blogspot.com and my website, and I hope you enjoy my view of the world!
