Anna Dielschneider

Whether she’s editing a manuscript or collaging with old math notes and Chinese takeout slips, Anna Dielschneider finds and offers up beauty in all kinds of places. “Anything can be art,” she says. “As a collage artist, I’m constantly taking bits and pieces others’ work and discovering how to make it new.” Anna also unleashes her creative side through photography and writing—she recently finished an MFA in Creative Writing at Hamline. Off the clock, she can be found cooking, cycling, or hanging with her husband and three wacky cats at their home in Northeast.
