About Pia Designs
Hello and welcome! It's so nice to see you wanting to find out more about me and what I do.
My name is Annie. I'm a mum to two teenage boys, wife of 18 years and aside from making beautiful jewellery, painting, and a day job, footy (AFL) is our life.
I am a lover of art, painting and creating. Art has interested me from an early age, and I studied art, photography and graphic design in College - where all of my works took on an abstract form. The use of colour, sharp lines and brushstrokes appeal to me and when you look through the pieces you may see elements of these.
I am aboriginal (palawa, paredarerme), which stems from my great grandmother. I love to create paintings that reflect my heritage, the connection to country and the aboriginal culture. I am an artist member of the Aboriginal Art Association of Australia.
All my pieces are small works of art, with no two pieces being exactly the same. Therefore you can be assured when you purchase a piece of jewellery or artwork from Pia Designs, you are purchasing a totally unique, functional and wearable piece of art or totally unique artwork. All pieces are made on the North West Coast of Tasmania on tommeginne land.
Custom made jewellery and painting commissions can be made upon request - please see the Customs & Commissions page, or contact me at email@example.com for more information or to discuss your next piece.
