Anne Garner, middle child of five, was born in Burnley, England, near the home of the Pendle Witches. Raised in rainy Glossop at the end of the Snake Pass, she grew up in the magical Derbyshire countryside, head in the clouds. Fascinated by little insects and night owls, she loved to pick wimberries on the moors, draw flowers and birds and roam the nearby woods. Her family moved to Sheffield, a hotbed of musical and artistic counter-culture, when she was in her early teens. As she grew into adulthood Anne began to paint, compose, perform, allow music and art to carry her through life.
