Anne Lowe / Paper Artist
Anne Lowe describes her art as “Paper Therapy.” The folded paper art she is known for is called Iris Folding, that uses folded origami paper, encircling a shiny piece in the center (the pupil of the eye). The folded pieces are the iris of the eye.
Some of her pieces are made by using the insides of security envelopes, thus up-cycling something someone might toss away, into lovely art. No treese were harmed in making those pieces!
Anne lives in Tucson, AZ, and has been teaching art for over 15 years at Michaels Stores in Wisconsin and in Arizona, as well as at senior centers, and at Camp Young Judaea-Midwest in Waupaca, WI. She recently held a show at the Tucson JCC Gallery where she exhibited and sold many of her Iris Folding pieces, and Hebrew Calligraphy pieces.
She is a member of the Tucson Artist Co-operative and the Artists of the Many Hands Courtyard.
She is a past Hadassah region president of the Great Lakes Region of Hadassah, and is currently the chapter president of the Hadassah Southern Arizona. In addition, she served as the co-chair of the Tucson JCC International Jewish Film Festival this past year.
