Hi, I am Annabel,
I am Scottish and half Dutch.
I was born in Glasgow and moved to Freiburg in 2001.
I studied a Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design.
After working in Interior design and
owning The Wolf's Hearth, an accommodation centre.
I became involved in Community Arts.
I believe that 'creative expression' plays
a key role in our emotional development.
For as long as I can remember,
I have loved art and making things with my hands.
In addition to my own creative practice,
I write, do nature therapy, dance, paint, bake
& take part in personal development courses.
In 2011 I found a lovely light studio in Ebringen
and Annabel's Kunst Atelier, was born.
My Art Work
I create 'Textile Art Pieces' ; Fabric Panels, Framed Pictures, Fabric Books and Accessories. I combine techniques such as painting directly onto fabric, printing with paper stencils, Applique & Patchwork. I transfer photos (which I take myself) onto fabric, do mono-printing and finish off sewing using my trusty Pfaff sewing machine.
I create textile pieces for sale. I exhibit work and take part in art markets.
