Annie Waring

I studied printed textile design at Middlesex Polytechnic in the early 80’s. When I graduated I began to design and hand paint my own ranges of bone china tableware. Then I worked under my maiden name of Doherty. I sold my work in Liberty and Thomas Goode in London, Henri Bendel in New York and as far away as Japan. I also designed exclusive ranges for Marks and Spencer among others.

More recently I have returned to painting, the root of all my design work, and now concentrate predominantly on still life. I work in oils and occasionally watercolour. I like to paint simple objects from my home and strive to capture their essence. I am particularly interested in light and reflection and naturally ceramics feature heavily in my compositions.

I live in Tunbridge Wells Kent with my husband and two children.
