Art that tells a story
of connections, memories, places, emotions, dreams and possibilities.
Hi, I'm Annie, welcome to my website. My work is about the human response to places and experiences and often tell a story. You will find a selection of work, some abstract, some realistic and most inbetween.
I have always loved nature, the sea, the landscape and the seasons. We are all made up of many layers of memories and connections with places, experiences and people past and present. Art can touch us in many different ways and illicit an emotional response that touches something within us. Sometimes there is so much to see and relate to that we can immerse ourselves in it again and again. I hope that you see something here that you can connect with and that you enjoy.

In 1966 David Bailey photographed Twiggy for Vogue magazine. This is an interpretation of that event in acrylic, ink and collage, starting with a "blind" drawing. Only looking at the photograph and never at the drawing until it is finished gives an interesting variation on the figure.
