Douro – Dummer , Ontario
Intrigued by the subtle imperfections of nature, Annie creates precise shapes, and then hammers and re-shapes them into more “organic” forms with earthy textures. The juxtapositions in nature inspire her to mix oxidized brass and bronze, along with polished sterling silver and gold plated materials. She primarily uses a serene palate of semi precious gems, glass and concrete as a visual respite from our frantic man-made world.
Pax means peace in Latin, and Annie’s artistic intention is that her jewellery might inspire a bit of calm - encouraging people to pause and notice the little things around them - the raw, the small, the subtle, and the beautiful…for that is where peace resides for her.
