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
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.
Annies 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.
