Anna Clark lives in Pensacola, Florida where she runs The Spinning Seahorse, teaches spinning and dyeing workshops, and loves to create uniquely spun "objet d'art", oil paintings and mixed media items. Previous to Florida, Anna owned and ran a farm in Oregon, where she raised Shetland and Romney sheep, Cashmere and Angora goats, sold and worked the resulting fiber, and spun and knit creations, all under the watchful eye of her guard Llama “Bob”. She began spinning in 1998 to take advantage of the fleece her farm was producing and quickly became obsessed with the textures and colors she could derive from hand spun products that were nothing like anything commercially available at the time. She has been a color and fiber enthusiast for nearly her entire life, sewing, knitting and painting from an early age. A love for color, all things painterly, and the process of creation has spurred The Spinning Seahorse founder, Anna Clark, to begin creating using fiber media and teaching her process to willing students. Anna is a mixed media artist, but focuses on the use of unusual fiber elements and art yarns to bring unusual beauty to knitted and woven garments, art pieces, and jewelry.

In January 2013, The Spinning Seahorse of Pensacola, Florida began from elements of a past fiber business that once existed at our sheep farm in the mountains of Oregon. We teach spinning, dyeing, weaving, knitting and felting. We love what we do, and hope to give our students the same level of achievement in enjoying the artist process, as much as the artistic product.
