I grew up in Ottawa, Ontario and legitimately thought I was straight until I was 19, because I suppose that's what you get growing up in a bureaucrat town. My family has always encouraged and supported my impulse towards the creative fields however, and so I've been very lucky to live among lovers of the arts. I have a BFA in Art History from Concordia University, a Graduate Certificate in Scriptwriting from Algonquin College, and will soon embark on an MFA in Documentary Media at Ryerson University.
The moniker "a. crookedmouth" is actually just a play on my name, Anna Campbell, as "a" is my first initial and "Campbell" is the anglisation of the Gaelic "cam beul," which means "crooked mouth."
I dabble in pretty much any visual medium I can get my hands on, from graphic design and illustration, to mixed media and collage, to web video and film.
Conscientiously feminist and queer, I also love bold colour and dynamic shapes, and above all want to make my work feel immediate and emotional.
