Anna finds inspiration in Hello Kitty, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, and illustrators like Dr Seuss and Mary Blair, and in 2007, launched Mochimochi Land as a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance. Anna's knitted toys have been featured on The Martha Stewart Show, all around the web, and in print.
