A Sassy take on Yesterday
To try to sum Anne Taintor in something like those tiny “About me” boxes, we’d say two things: She’s is a modern woman, blessed with an excellent sense of humor. After graduating from Harvard (degree in Visual and Environmental studies), she took up a job, 9 to 5 – office hours, working as a cartographer, all the while her real interests converging on the topic of collage.
In the mid-eighties, wanting to spend more time at home and with her kids, she sought a way to make her greater interests pay off. This resulted in a line of pins and magnets adorned with collages she made, that were in turn adorned with her ironic, cheeky, laugh-out-loud and in all kinds of funny and insightful takes on relationships and thoughts of subjects in vintage images and posters. Didn’t take much for Mrs. Taintor’s line to become a favorite for gifts, cards and such – and eventually her works expanded in way of applications. So much so, she was finally able to lay down cartography, and become a full time joy-bringer – designing ever more sassy collages and dressing up with them, household, office and a variety of other objects that make us smile.
