I reached out to Ann as I was in pursuit of a tie for my dad that would match a piece of my late mother's jewelry I am wearing for my wedding and could not be more excited to gift this to him. It was a wonderful experience to work with Ann-- I sent her a few photos of the color scheme, jewelry, and my dad's suit and she created this gorgeous tie. I live in the United States and it shipped very quickly. Seeing it in-person is even more beautiful and the silk is very high quality. Thank you, Ann, for sharing your talents with my family and me for our special day.

Lovely silk and beautifully hand painted! Bought this as a gift and I’m really impressed with the quality. Nicely padded to protect the glasses well too. Very happy!
I create one off luxury products, hand painted silks and original fused glass pieces with my very own original designs. Each item is unique.
My hand painted silks are a luxury for me to celebrate vibrant silk dyes without worrying about the constraints of commercial printing (as I do when designing commercially) ... I can enjoy the simple freedom of painting and exploring the colour on this most sumptuous of fabrics, offering something different, created in my design studio in north London.
Recently I have ventured into the world of fused glass and am so excited about playing with this new and beautiful material. I love the transparency, the vibrant colours and the way the glass catches and reflects light.
I graduated in 1978 with a degree in printed textile design from Middlesex Polytechnic (previously Hornsey Art School). I subsequently established my design studio and have been designing commercially on a freelance basis ever since, creating original hand-painted artwork for various surface pattern, printed fashion fabrics, printed/woven furnishing fabrics, giftwrap and packaging.
I am a member of East Finchley Open Artists and exhibit every year at the Open House exhibitions in July. www.eastfinchleyopen.org.uk
I am also a part of a local art network, N12 Artists
