Artist's Statement

Anna M. Warrock’s publications include From the Other Room, which won the Slate Roof Press Chapbook Award and features a letter-press cover and art-book design, Horizon, and Smoke and Stone. Her poems have appeared in Lily Poetry Review, Conduit, The Madison Review, Ibbetson Street, The Sun, Harvard Review, Poesis, and other journals, and in the anthologies Honoring Nature: The Authors & Artists Festival and Kiss Me Goodnight, writing by motherless daughters, a Minnesota Book Award finalist. Warrock’s work explores the radical reorientation that accompanies loss and also the intimacy of understanding nature and being, as in the letterpress broadside for her poem "The Salmon Go All the Way Upstream," illustrated by the artist Janet Fredericks. Artist Irma Wagner combined lines from Warrock’s poems with woodcuts for poster art. Among other honors, she has received Somerville Arts Council Literature Fellowships and Project Grants. Her poems have been choreographed, performed at Boston's Hayden Planetarium, and set to music. “Remembering My Mother’s Face,” is inscribed in brick in the Davis Square, Somerville, MBTA subway station.

Her bead jewelry highlights the individual and unique beads she has collected over time. Each piece may use a wide variety, from dzi beads, to African trade beads, to Czech and Japanese glass beads, making the earrings and necklaces one-of-a-kind wearable art.
