Anne studied art in New York and at Chelsea College of Art and Design. She had a studio at Cockpit Arts, London before moving to Eastbourne in 2004. She exhibits throughout England, and work has been commissioned by The Jerwood Gallery and Dulwich Picture Gallery.
Anne says of her work;
There is a history to the medium of ceramics which is linked to our industrial heritage and to our domestic lives. There is an element of the souvenir to my work, not just of a place, but of a time.
I am very inspired by all things to do with the sea and shipping and our British maritime heritage, as well as by modern British artists. The decoration technique of sgraffito is used with the image scratched into layers of colour on the clay. There is a definite Alfred Wallis feel to the sgraffito pieces. As each piece is handmade and painted they all have their own character.
