Ann Froomberg - hand painted silks/fused glass
Tel: 07932 477179
I graduated in 1978 with a degree in printed textile design from Middlesex Polytechnic (previously Hornsey Art School). I subsequently established my design studio and have been designing commercially on a freelance basis ever since, creating original hand-painted artwork for various surface pattern, printed fashion fabrics, printed/woven furnishing fabrics, giftwrap and packaging. Joining the EFOA has encouraged me to rediscover my love of silks and explore ways to paint original one-off pieces.
About my work: Aside from my commercial designwork I also hand paint silks, a luxury for me to celebrate vibrant silk dyes without worrying about the constraints of commercial printing ... I can enjoy the simple freedom of painting and exploring the dyes on this most sumptuous of fabrics.
Recently I ventured into the world of jewellery, creating unusual earrings from silk, threads and beads. Thanks to the generosity of glass artist Pat Marvell, I have also started experimenting with fused glass, making earrings, cuff links and more.
