Anne O’Brien

Anne O’Brien is an artist with a passion for conservation and a background in environmental education.

She loves using locally sourced recycled fabrics to make life-like sculptures and puppets of endangered and extinct creatures to make a difference in conservation.

She can often be found in Suva’s second-hand shops feeling clothes for her next creation! This has raised a few eyebrows and questions. She loves a challenge and once made a bird from a takeaway coffee cup!

As well as making models for NFMV, Anne is working on the new NTF Discovery Centre with the team at Sigatoka Sand Dunes. Anne’s ‘Anniemals’ are being used around the globe for conservation education.

Attendees are reminded that the due date for payment of fees on the mentioned workshop is the 12th of February 2016.

Please contact Anna on email [email protected] on details of payments.
