Art by Ana Borstad at the Heart of the Hammer Cafe


From Vancouver to Montreal to Toronto, from Rain Forests to Universities, the work of this young artist strives to evoke the wonder and struggle of growth. Her work is playful, evoking a sense of surprise and delight in the world around her.

Anna works primarily with water colours but has a soft spot for salvaged and vintage materials with all the history and memory latent in found objects. She keeps a blog at It is about sprouty things and art. I like that she see the sadness implied in our facility with cynicism and our unfamiliarity with awe.

Anna Borstad’s art is on exhibit at the Heart of the Hammer Cafe from April 1-30 2011. She invites you to join her at the cafe on the evening of April 15th from 5-8pm; a nice chance to discuss sprouty things, art and awe.
