Anna Weaver is a fresh talent in the “folk art” genre, an Amish mother with six young children who finds time to do all of the usual chores around the home and can still make time to create genuine “Amish Art”. Most Amish art is done by “English” artist painting Amish scenes. Anna has the usual eighth grade education with no formal art instruction. Her unusual talent was discovered by a local book store owner who saw some of Anna’s original pieces, Amish farm scenes painted on softball sized rocks picked up from the fields where she helped with the farming. Since being discovered she has created a 20′ by 4′ mural of Amish scenes on the wall of a recently opened local restaurant. After completing the mural she has painted several scenes on canvas which have all been sold at this time.
