Anne was born in Ireland and moved to Edinburgh as a young girl. After studying at the Scottish College of Textiles, she had an amazing opportunity to work in the Gallery of Antique Costume and Textiles, and moved to London.

She continued working on and realizing her own designs and in 1990 opened up her first shop in Notting Hill.

She has been living and working in London ever since. She draws her inspiration from life on earth, light and shade and all the space in between.
