I run a lettercarving studio on the edge of Cumbria, in the Yorkshire Dales. Here I carve commissions for inscriptions including memorials, garden features and house signs, make pieces for exhibiting and lettering designs for interiors.
I also carry out public art projects often working on site. Besides lettering, I design and print wallpaper and fabric - my work is featured this month (May) in Beam newsletter, published by Heritage Revival director Claire Lewis: (see my Links page.)

My latest collaboration with poet Matt Black is now available to buy - see news page for details. Matt wrote a lovely poem about how we might cope coming out of lockdown. I wanted to show what I felt about it visually - and came up with this teatowel. We are raising funds from sales to support the charity Refuge.

I run short courses in lettercarving, and give talks about my work.
My course on 2nd-4th September at Greystoke Craft Garden will go ahead with Annie’s inventive distancing measures in place – see courses page for details.
