About

a maker - of anything & out of anything

Osmosis Designs is the brainchild of me, Annie.

Osmosis - the quick definition! It means a type of absorption through a membrane. My brain is the membrane and it absorbs ideas.
Osmosis - the long version. If you paid attention in science classes, you'll know the meaning of osmosis... it's a process of absorption through a semi-permeable membrane (often taught during botany classes - another love of mine). I see my mind as that membrane - sifting through the myriad of ideas and inspirations that bombard me every day. After much thought, play and discarding of excess, my designs are what finally make it through to my hands to make and to you to view via this shop. The aim is to reach an equilibrium.

The turning point for me creatively was on teaching myself vector graphics software with the aim of designing for laser-cutting. Now I'm totally hooked on being able to make things I'd never have thought possible before. With my use of various materials, colours and sizes which I cut, engrave, paint or embroider , I can offer choice for my customers and creative freedom for me – perfect!

I love mixed media as I can never stick to just one technique. I love to paint, draw, carve, and collage. As my designs develop, I find myself using each medium in different ways using my laser cut design as a central factor.
A love of embroidery is in my genes. This love has lead me to design a series of perforated, jewellery sized 'blanks' that can be stitched into with cross-stitch, or any other style of stitched embellishment. I sew some myself to my own patterns, but also supply them for DIY in kit form for you to stitch to reflect your own style. The versatility for your own work is endless - various stitches, beads, buttons can all be sewn to create unique jewellery pieces.

I have my brilliant illustrator husband, Owen, to help with the decision making and design critique. Arrow, our Bedlington Terrier has been know to woof his opinion too!! Look out for my Bedlington Terrier brooch on the shop. I couldn't resist using his cute profile!

So that's me – for now anyway! Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or requests

    What do I do? ... I'm a maker. Of anything. Out of anything. I always have & I always will. I've enjoyed working in paint, clay, fabric, yarn and paper amongst other media, but have combined laser cutting with a love of embroidery for osmosis.
