Anna Sparks is a mixed media artist, designer, photographer, and all-around 'arranger' of things. She combines her love for traveling, visual storytelling, and collecting things with her desire to spread a message and document the environment in her mixed media pieces, analog photographs, and found material collages. She uses layers as means to create texture, compositions, and depth, and is inspired by music, street art, and our evolving society.
As a street and culture photo documentarian, she approaches her subjects with respect, grace, and understanding. She finds her eye drawn to lines and colors that create balanced and asymmetrical compositions in the frame. Rarely does she post-edit her photographs as she loves experimenting with analog methods and relishes finding tiny surprises in film, including light leaks and double exposures.
Anna is also an arts administrator and UX designer who has curated both visual and musical performances — providing event organization, community development, marketing, and communication expertise. She is a founding partner of the Stay Happy Collective in Seattle, WA and worked with the Camera of the Month Club while living in New York.
