Annie's Diary ...

Here’s wishing everyone a happy, healthy and creative 2015!

I am so looking forward to starting all the new workshops that l have booked for this year. It is fascinating watching all the new projects evolving and seeing people of varying ages developing their creative skills in many different ways.

This year,for me, has started with a ‘doggy’ theme. I have been enjoying painting and sculpting three very different breeds –as illustrated in the photographs below.

It is amazing how species can be so varied in every possible way but have the same label.

During the next two months Clive and l will be planning the programme for the art and nature club at George’s Barn Peene. It is an exciting time as we will be looking at how creatures around us produce amazing pieces of natural art work in their lives just as a means of survival.There will be pond dipping and of course ‘The Tangled Trail’ will be there for people to discover.

I will also be offering young artists an opportunity to take part in the artsawards –Discover and Explore module.


If anyone is interested in taking in part or has any questions about it –please contact me by email or telephone 01303 840665.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Check for times and dates of events.


I have recently started creating a new range of sculptures. They can be commissioned.

The art and nature club will be starting again at Easter.

About Annie

You can see a film of me demonstrating some of my methods by clicking the picture link below.

Annie was born in 1956 in the heart of the Kentish countryside. She grew up loving her natural surroundings and always felt a dedication to creating Painting and Sculpture. After completing her A Levels she moved to London and gained a B.A. Honours Degree studying Fine Art and Photography at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design.

She then worked as a Specialist Pottery Painter in London and subsequently moved to Gloucestershire where she worked as an industrial potter, learning the skills of using commercial pottery equipment.

After pursuing a Post Graduate Course at Sussex University she taught Ceramics, Fine Art and Textiles in several schools.

After teaching for 15 years Annie felt the need to give her own work more dedication as well as offering a retreat for a few of the rejected animals living in local sanctuaries.

Annie’s Studio now sits in the heart of the Kentish countryside - an absolute haven of inspiration for her work.

She works mainly by commission and during the past ten years has worked on a variety of projects including large murals, ceramic sculptures, portraits, personalised pottery and highly decorated loo seats.

Annie is dedicated to producing work of a professional standard but is always ready to instigate some humour into a piece of seemingly serious work.

I am holding one day workshops during the Summer on request, so if you are thinking of booking a creative day - painting or ceramic sculpture - please do it soon as l do get fairly booked up.

Workshops can be for up to six people. Workshop time is £35 per hour plus £5 per person for materials and firing.

Minimum of two hours.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call or email me-
