Annette was born in the Garden of England and from a very early age loved to draw and paint all things pretty.
After graduating in Interior Design from Nottingham Trent University she began her creative career working for The Tussauds Group in London, designing scenery and interiors for the Madame Tussaud brand around the world.
Her passion for illustration then led her to a position as an in-house designer with a greetings card publisher during four inspirational years where her love for colour, pattern and decorative detailing was able to shine.
Annette relocated with her husband to rural Portugal, where she currently works from her studio as a Freelance Designer and Illustrator. She shares her working-time between designing and illustrating for a range of clients and bringing up her twin children.
Annette's work is created using good old-fashioned pencils, paint and paper while embracing digital technology to add the finishing touches. Oh, and lots of cups of english tea!
