Annie's Diary ...

Summer seems to have arrived at last ..........

I am fortunate to have been working on a new nature trail project .The walk has been created by Dr. Clive Nuttman and sponsored by 'Up on the Downs' and the starting point is at The Elham Valley Line Trust Railway Museum and Country Craft centre in Peene near Folkestone.

A local woodcarver John Wise and l have produced 10 information boards for the trail and they will be in position very soon so l hope that you will come to Peene and follow the trail so that you can see them and hopefully gain some new knowledge as well as enjoying the beautiful countryside.

I have taken some photographs of some of them to give you an idea of what to expect but you need to go and view them displayed in their environment to fully appreciate John's work.

I am looking forward to hearing your reaction to them........

Several people have been in contact to ask me about clay workshops. I am already booked up for August but l will be doing workshops throughout the autumn and winter.

The nature's art club at The Elham Valley Line Trust in Peene will be on the first Saturday of each month as usual- so please join us if you wish.The charge is £1.50 per person to cover the cost of materials.

Please get in touch by email or landline 01303 840665 .




Email or telephone 01303 840665


The Tangled Trail, George's Barn and The Railway Museum are open week-ends and Bank Holidays from 10am until 5pm.

Look forward to seeing you there . . .

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-
