Annie's Diary ...

We are very close to the end of 2014 which means we all have the opportunity to make resolutions and plans for another new year.

This year for me has been packed with numerous events and projects.I have gained so much enjoyment working with various schools as well as the workshops in The Green Room at my home.
The kiln has fired over 2000 pieces of work during the year. So l think it deserves the new set of elements waiting to be fitted to give it yet another lease of life.

The sculpture trail at The Elham Valley Line Trust Centre at Peene has become a popular place to visit and we will be developing The Tangled Bank and Trail next year when the centre opens just before Easter. We will be running an art and nature club as well so keep an eye on the website for information. .

I have two new dragons living with me at the moment. Delirious is an example of a dragon who has just eaten a princess. He has a very contented grin but l don’t think he will be moving very far for a while. Deidre is a very proud Mum. She has her baby safely tucked under her wing away from the eyes of predators. They will be coming down to stay in George’s Barn at Easter.

Another exciting piece of news is that l have just become an artsaward advisor. This means that l can
guide young artists towards gaining the artsawards certificates next year during my workshop sessions. So l am really looking forward to that as well as doing some of my own work.
All for now –more news in 2015......

I have recently started creating a new range of tree sculptures. They can be commissioned to represent a specific person or even a family - so becoming a "Family Tree"! Two examples are shown below.

. . . and "The Tree House" (shown below) will be exhibited at Folkestone Art Society Exhibition in July.

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

My grateful thanks to Nick Paine for his film making and all his help and support.

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-
