The bird behind the name
Hello, I'm Annie!
I'm an illustrator, textiles artist & social media strategist, committed to helping you tell your authentic & unique story so that you can shape your business into something that expresses your true creative lifestyle.
The story so far...
Back in 2010 I started stitching for my newborn son as I was not happy with the lack of skulls on baby clothes & soon discovered the joys of machine embroidery. I stitched up baby clothes with a rocking' twist & this quickly grew into my home based embroidery business Scavenger Annie. After running numerous sewing workshops around the north west I set up a craft studio in Warrington town centre in 2015 where I taught sewing & craft lessons to all ages, as well as facilitating other creatives to teach their skills.
Fast forward to 2018 & I am back in the creative saddle as an illustrator, designer & social media strategist. I love to use watercolours, ink pens & digital techniques to create my illustrations. I am inspired by history & cultures, tattoos & science fiction, myths & legends. My portfolio includes cocktail sipping monsters, playful pirates & out of this world aliens!
Previous work has included family trails, historic maps, wall murals & activity packs for the museum & heritage industry.
I'm also passionate about helping creatives to push the boundaries when it comes to social media & to inject their creativity into their marketing in order to create an authentic story for their followers. Through online learning platforms I am able to reach out to fellow makers & offer self paced classes including a series on "Social Media for Creatives".
Please contact me if you would like to chat about collaborations, commissions or your favourite sci-fi show (it's Star Trek & Stargate for me!).
