Annie Fain Liden is a full-time studio artist from Murphy, North Carolina a few miles from the John C. Campbell Folk School. In search of her destined craft she came upon book and paper arts at Penland School of Crafts in 2002. She is known to sneak fiber arts techniques, particularly hand-embroidery, into her book designs, has an extensive mini-book collection thanks to her small books edition exchange workshops, and is a great believer in the blank book as a “place” to explore personal creativity. She teaches regionally and is sole-proprietor of A. Fain Books, specializing in hand-bound, made-to-order custom journals, sketchbooks and wedding books.
