Anne makes sculptural mosaics using recycled materials, predominantly crockery. Using objects with a history is a key element in her work. The inclusion of other materials such as buttons, glass, coins and jewellery are typical. Patterns and shapes from Vintage and Victorian crockery are painstakingly cut by hand with the use of one simple tool.
She set up her studio in 1993 a couple of years after graduating in Fine Art at Wolverhampton, her work already informed by the discarded materials in her daily life. She continues to be inspired by things unwanted; she calls them “The ordinary made extraordinary” and spreads this recycling philosophy into the public domain.
Anne has carried out numerous commissions for hospitals, gardens and private homes, nationally and internationally and her work is in private collections around the world. She is a professional member of BAMM (British Association for Modern Mosaic)
