I can’t remember how I first stumbled across Annie Everingham – but when I saw her work, and read her story, I knew I had to have her on the show!

Annie runs an art + design business in Newcastle, Australia. She created beautiful abstract art, and she begin as a designer with a background in fashion, before demand encouraged her to also move into fine art.



I was impressed by her work, her brand, and the success she’s achieved at a relatively young age, so I wanted to find out how her business evolved – especially as she mixes fine art with design so well.



I hope you enjoy this episode – there are lots of gems of wisdom, and lots of down-to-earth reality about the challenges of growing a business – and plenty of laughs, too – we had a great time recording this!
