Both my Grandfather and Uncle were artists in both oil and watercolour and from them I believe that I have inherited a love of all things visual. Unlike them though, the only brush that is ever in my hand is a decorators paintbrush! The tools that I use to express my ideas are my camera and my computer.
I qualified in graphic design and photography at art college (University for the creative arts – Epsom) and before having my three children worked for three companies within the design and print industry in the UK. I have continued to develop my skills since having my children.
In June 2004 my husband Simon and I moved from Southern England to Montbray which is near Villedieu-les-Poêles in Normandy. Simon has re-established his Antique Restoration business over here along with his Classic Car Dashboard restorations services and has recently been awarded the title Maître Artisan and I finally took the plunge and set up my own business.
I specialise in logo design, branding and website design & creation for all types of small businesses both here in Normandy and further afield.
I also have another passion which is photography and within my business, Anibas Design, carry out professional wedding photography and other photographic sessions.
I love living in Normandy and the diversity of my work. One day I can be helping a fledgling business with it’s design & marketing needs and the next day I can be sharing in a couples most memorable day, creating the images that they will treasure for a lifetime.
