Annie Everingham is an Australian visual artist and creative freelancer. An intuitive and colour driven creative, she combines a love of textile design, fashion, interiors and art to encapsulate the elements of beauty found in everyday life across a range of creative platforms.
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 the prestigious UTS Fashion program in Sydney, and yet to demonstrate a sound ability to thread a bobbin properly, Annie discovered the art of creating abstract textures and prints on fabric and left sewing tailored pants to the experts. She found her groove by 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, and her practice has continued to evolve ever since.
Annie is now a full time creative and operates a small studio based art business in the coastal city of Newcastle, 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 wholesales her own line of design and art focused products to a number of interior, lifestyle and design stores across Australia. She also teaches workshops and enjoys engaging in collaborative projects with other designers and companies across the creative industry.
