Annie Everingham is an Australian visual artist and creative. Her intuitive and colour driven practice combines a love of textile design, fashion, flowers, interiors and art to encapsulate the elements of beauty found in everyday life across a range of mediums, primarily working with acrylics.
While a keen illustrator and painter since childhood, Annie was formally trained in design, with no plans to pursue her art practice professionally. But while completing her graduate year of a fashion & textile design degree through UTS in Sydney, Annie discovered a love for creating abstract textures and art on fabrics and paper and left sewing tailored pants to the experts.
A self taught painter, her practice developed from stripping back the garment design process and shifting her focus to creating abstract patterns, textures and artworks through hand painting, dyeing and digital printing onto silks, before moving onto painting large scale artworks on canvas, her creative profile continuing to evolve ever since.
Annie is now a full time artist and runs a small studio based art business in the coastal city of Newcastle in NSW, Australia. Her original artworks are currently sold and exhibited through Australian retailers Fenton & Fenton (Melbourne) and Jumbled (Orange, NSW). Alongside her visual art practice, Annie creates and sells her own line of high quality prints in interior, lifestyle and design stores and to interior stylists. She also teaches workshops and enjoys engaging in collaborative projects with other designers and companies across the creative industry, including murals and textile collaborations.
