‘Anna approaches each new project with great enthusiasm, and an open mind. Her own talent and experiences, aligned with her great depth of formal training and professionalism, are the foundations of her mentoring. Her guidance provides a much better understanding of what makes a story breathe and come to life. She is prompt and focused in her feedback, detailed in her analysis. With her help, I have grown in my vision and capability; to understand ‘how’ to put my thoughts and images into words that convey depth and richness, meaning, and have a connection with the reader. I am truly indebted to her for her encouragement and support. She offers inspiration when things are not going well and she has shared in my journey.’ Will Humphreys
