Annie Begley is a potter and Painter working in East Kent.
http://anniebegley.co.uk/index.html

She also runs classes on painting and pottery. Some of her work can be seen at Georges Barn, between Newington and Peene, just outside Folkestone.
http://www.elhamvalleylinetrust.org/
Which as well as being connected to the Elham Valley Line railway museum, house a countryside and craft centre. At the weekends you can usually seeing Annie working on some of her sculptures and woodworkers turning bowls etc. Or just sit and have a coffee.

Years ago she worked as a painter for Derek Fowlers Pottery in London.
She has produced a lot of large works for a wildlife trail around the Barn and other work is fantasy/mythical based.
My current Avatar (in the blue hat) is by Annie.

These are not the best pic's as they were taken on my GF's phone.
But along with the pic's on her website, will give you a sense of her work.

Much of her work is very large. It is also very reasonably priced and affordable.

Here are a couple of general views over her stall in the Barn.



A work in progress. His feet still need to be attached.


Yep, this is one of her pottery works, not a stuffed toy!


3 young piggies



Annie about to pack a lamb my Girlfriend has just bought. You can also see a mummy piggy in front of her.


And a fabulous Hare bust.

I nearly forgot my Avatar.

He wasn't really for sale, as Annie had only brought him in to keep her company - having made him a long time ago. But as I fell in love with him and she could see he would go to a good home, she let me have him Jumping For Joy







No, it's not your imagination, nor camera trickery. His head moves / comes off.
Annie forgot to tell me that when I first started looking at him  Big Shock  Luckily I've got fast reactions!





He now keeps a few Bill Fisher characters company and seems to fit right in with them.



I'll probably go back in the next few weeks. So will take better pic's and any new work she has there.
