Annie Montgomerie’s work relates to childhood and the emotions intertwined in that stage of life, combined with a love of animals.

Annie creates childlike figures with expressive faces conveying a range of magnified mental states that a child may experience in different situations.

Made using vintage fabrics and incorporating found objects, her work observes and comprehends the tensions of childhood, inviting us to empathise with its bittersweetness.

Creating the atmosphere of an old school photograph, Hand Me Downs will house a collection of British animals – cats, dogs, foxes, lambs and rabbits together with more exotic species – each bringing their own unique personalities to the collection.

Graduating from University of Plymouth in 1991, Annie Montgomerie has shown her life-like creatures worldwide and she now works on her creations in her native Dorset.
