Annie works predominantly
in appliqué, which is richly embellished
with free-machine embroidery. She produces a variety of small craft
gift pieces, which are sold throughout Australia. Colours are rich,

metallics. Over recent years, she has been producing a variety of
larger, art pieces, many of which have been sold at exhibition.
