Annie is a contemporary abstract painter/textile artist living in the beautiful landscape of Cumbria. She is inspired by the countryside around her and by her life experiences and works with collage, stitch, charcoal, acrylics and oil bars. Annie is interested in layers, colour, mark making and texture and she uses maps, dress making patterns and networks within her paintings. Some paintings take months to resolve and go through a roller coaster ride of various stages where they are disliked before something ‘clicks’ and they come out the other side.
