Member Profile of the Month
Anya Bungay is a Whitby, Ontario artist who comes from a long line of makers and creative people who have inspired her throughout her life.
Both of Anya’s grandmothers were skilled seamstresses who made clothes and home décor items, usually without patterns. Her grandfather was a cobbler who made and repaired shoes and leather goods, and her mother was an avid crocheter who skillfully designed and created clothes for little Anya’s childhood Barbie dolls.
Anya’s favourite materials to work with are textiles and wood. Much of the material used in her projects is reclaimed and recycled. She will often integrate items that she has gathered during walks on the beach or in the woods, saving her finds until she has the perfect piece in mind for them. She especially loves to incorporate unusual materials and bright colours into her work.
