"My designs have to flow; to show the way energy moves between everything in nature"

 

Annette exhibits throughout the UK and abroad, and is a member of the Northamptonshire Guild of Designer Craftsmen and a fellow of the Professional and Amateur Artists Fellowship.  She also belong to the Printmakers Council in London and the BBH Print Society where she has exhibited internationally.

 

Her latest series of work has taken an abstract form and is entitled BLUU - which has brought together print, paint and charcoal as well as developing a method of print plate to bring together her love of colour and shape, much of which is inspired by the poetry she writes.
