Humans are deeply influenced by their environment. Making a conscious choice to dwell in a healthy creative space empowers people to flourish. For these reasons, Anna began Wolfson Earthen Finishes, a small company that is dedicated to natural building implementation and education, in 2006.
Her reverence for nature combined with her need for artistic expression led her to explore innovative ways of integrating organic elements to create a harmonious environment. Anna collaborates with unprocessed natural materials in the creation of vibrant artwork and architectural elements. She utilizes natural fibers, clays, aggregates, pigments and dyes to create warmth, beauty and a healthy atmosphere.
As one of a few Natural builders in the Chicago area, Wolfson teaches seminars on Natural Building, hosts Natural Building Meetups, technical workshops, and contributes her skills as a contractor and artist on residential and commercial projects.
Anna also builds wood-fired earthen bread ovens, all natural garden architecture, and straw bale/ adobe playhouses, gazebos, and auxiliary buildings for private and public use.
