Swoon Welcomes Fused Glass Artist, Anke Holm

This month along with Rae Smith's show, Peggys Cove to Cuba, we have on display work by the latest artist to join Swoon: Anke Holm.

Anke was born in Hamburg, Germany, studied economics and had a business career as auditor at a chartered accountant company and manager in the oil trading industry. In 1995 she made the life changing step to immigrate to the South Shore of Nova Scotia. She always loved photography and had an affection with modern art and design. Since moving to Canada she graduated from the Sheffield School of interior design. Her fascinations with glass lead her to express her creativity working with this unique seductive material. 

Here are a few pieces of Anke's, more can be seen at the gallery and on our website
