Anne Mathieson lives in Birsay, Orkney where she works as a mental health officer and social worker. When she’s not hard at work you will find her roaming the beaches of Orkney in search of wood to carve into beautiful objects for your home. We had a chat with her to find out more about her craft and her ethos of striving for a more self sufficient, sustainable way of life.
