Annie designs and makes costumes, paints and embroiders decorative framed textiles.

She uses beautiful fabrics and her designs are carefully crafted. Recent work includes intricate embroideries of boats, fish, magic carpets, land and seascapes with jewel-like forms that sparkle and reflect light.

Her paintings have diverse themes, from figurative to abstract. A recent exhibition "Shakespeare’s Women" was acclaimed and described as "Beautifully constructed, framed fragments of period costumes and paintings. Unusual ideas focusing on delicate shapes and forms producing exciting new work that pushes the boundaries between costume and fine art into a new realm."
