Meet the Artist
Yah! (Palawa Kani word for Hello).
My name is Annie. I'm a proud palawa woman, which stems from my great grandmother. When I create my artworks, I feel a strong connection to my aboriginal heritage, to country and the aboriginal culture. I am inspired by the land on which I live and work, tommeginne country, as well as the waterways and mountainous regions of lutruwita (Tasmania).
I am an artist member of the Aboriginal Art Association of Australia.
Art has always been in my blood. 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'm a mum to two teenage boys, wife of 18 years and aside from making beautiful jewellery and painting, footy (AFL) is our life.
All my jewellery 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 artwork. All pieces are made on the North West Coast of Tasmania on tommeginne land.
