Biography

“Winner of the Jerwood Student Drawing Prize 2014, Annette is a recent graduate of Central St Martins, She is heavily influenced by cinematic images and draws from them for her inspiration. The series entitled “Wait a Minute. It’s the Truth and the Truth Hurts” is typical of the real quality to Annette’s work, which goes far beyond her obvious technical skills. There is a palpable tension, capturing key images, whilst still allowing the viewers to read in their own story and conclusions.”
Graham Hunter Gallery, London.
