In the Spaces: Poems and Illustrations by Anna LisabethAnna Lisabeth
Anna Lisabeth’s 32 page collection and first volume of poetry and illustrations.
Anna Lisabeth is an artist and poet based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Anna's artistic pursuits are an honest study of the world around her. She is always striving to explore life from the perspective of creation, inspired by the artistically progressive community of her home state, and the wonder-filled privilege of this life.
In August of 2018, Anna received a lifesaving heart-lung transplant at Stanford Medical Center, far from her Midwest home. These pages outline her experience of anticipation and growth in the months prior to her procedure. Examining themes of grief, complex terminality, and overwhelming hope, this is a commentary on the spaces created within us in the process of survival, and the beauty that comes forth through the reconciliation of all that is fleeting and finite.
