It is often more tricky to make a realistic talking puppet than a model. But it is always worth it as NOONE can resist the power of a puppet!

‘ Anne’s engaging puppets capture the imagination of both adults and children alike. Her life-sized seal puppet and gannet are hugely popular with visitors at the Scottish Seabird Centre.’ Tom Brock CEO
‘When I saw Anne’s puppets, I was knocked out. She manages to pull together the most unlikely materials and turn them into astonishing creations.’ Simon Parsons, award-winning film-maker,writer, producer and ex-head of BBC Children’s TV Scotland.
