In 2008 Annabel received an Ethos Housewares Design Award for her surface designs and was dubbed 'the next Grayson Perry' by the Evening Standard magazine. She has exhibited in London to New York.
The mould making, slipcasting and the decoration are all done by Annabel, Her vessels feature a range of creative mediums combining surface, graphic design and photography along with ceramic qualities - relief and own recipe glazes which produce unique and thought provoking collectibles.

Other inspiration includes wandering around London for example - by the time Annabel has meandered down avenues and alleyways she finds that she has gathered a wealth of ideas, captured by photographs or little doodles or perhaps flicking through old family photo albums, embarking on nostalgic journeys, providing a narrative to the good old days.

London based recent graduate artist Daniel Bourke is a contemporary painter with imaginative works that play on geometric pattern, interior and exterior space and are dream-like and illusive. His paintings deal with a range of formal elements from abstract expressionism to classical still life painting and remind us a little of Karen Kilimnik or Matthias Weischer. It is important for Bourke that his paintings demonstrate his formal skills as an oil painter as well as his love of the chaotic and abstract.
Still Life 1 recently won Bourke the Celeste Prize (www.celesteprize.com) and is about the relationship between object and self. It explores both abstract and gestural mark making as well as traditionally painted objects built up in glazes of oil paint.
