Bookhou for Anna Maria's Conservatory

Arounna immigrated with her family to Canada from Laos at the age of four. While her Canadian upbringing was typical, one thing that became a part of her life even as a child was the importance of making in everyday life. Perhaps instilled by her mother who made everything she needed and educated herself at a local college for work as a seamstress, or perhaps it was her own need to make, her life has been endlessly involved in making. After several art schools, a masters degree in fine arts and craft residencies in a variety of media, Arounna spent her time between her studio practice and work in education through mentoring and the building of a craft community with events and social media projects. In 2002 Arounna created Bookhou with her husband John Booth as a multidisciplinary studio creating a wide range of fabric based work, printing and furniture.
They have a brick and mortar shop in downtown Toronto where they reside with their two children Lliam and Piper.
