1981 - 1997
In 1995 Anna Riphahn finished the Timekeeper, an original story that was inspired by a quip her mother made one day as she was on her way to one of Anna’s music lessons. Having previously won 2nd and 3rd places in the contest previously, Anna’s creativity and artistry earned her the first place prize in the Landmark Editions, Inc.’s 1995 National Written & Illustrated By…Awards Contest for Students, a contest whose alumni include Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants, Dog Man, The Dumb Bunnies) and many other successful artists and storytellers.
Anna was much more than an author-illustrator, however. She was also a painter, musician, and athlete who was active in her community and her church. She created many incredible artistic works and frequently spoke about her work in an effort to inspire other artists of all ages.
