Hello! I'm Annie Gray and here is a little bit about me...
I have always loved art and making things and studied Design and Technology and TV production at University. Until we had children we lived in London and I travelled all over the world working as model. Once we had a family, life definitely had to slow down a little so we moved to beautiful leafy Buckinghamshire and Annie Gray Designs was born!
My "floating" paper cut pictures came about originally as birthday gifts for my son's friends when he went to a party. He would take along a picture of a "Cammo" Shark or a Lego Man with the recipients' name as the "title" and, for the first time I was getting thank you letters from the Mummies! I started taking my pictures to gift fairs and the business grew and grew. Soon I had added numerous ranges to the collection with gifts suitable for young and old, all with the option of a personalised title should you wish to have one included. They make great wedding presents, new baby gifts, house warming presents, or just something lovely for your own home just for you.
When my daughter went off to university I needed a constructive distraction to fill the "daughter shaped hole" that had been left behind! So I returned to my first love of still life painting - there is something gloriously decadent about losing yourself for a whole day in a painting. My pieces are suitable for any room in the home and the focus is on colour, light and simplicity. I love every second of painting them and I hope they bring you as much pleasure as they bring to me.
