  • “I love to print out images that I like from the internet. I constantly find postcards and I go to postcard shows all over the country when I can find them. It’s one of my favourite pastimes, postcard shows — you’ve got to go sometime, it’s incredible! For me, those images hold so much value for my inspiration. They are flat because they’re reproductions, but they’re reproductions that are sort of off key. I like vintage postcards of birds, because the print quality is off, it’s wonky, it’s not going to be perfect, and I value that.” 
    — Ann Craven
