Annie Sloan






Quick and Easy Transformations book available now!


Annie was born in Australia but since the age of 10 has lived in England with a spell in Zimbabwe and has a done a lot of travel particularly in Europe. Now she lives in historic Oxford where she also has her shop and paint headquarters, and she has a house in the beautiful French countryside of Normandy where she spends as much time as possible mainly in the summer months. Her 3 sons have left home now but 2 are involved in the paint business with her husband David who runs the company to leave Annie to 'play' with her paint and write books. Annie has now written over 20 books on colour, paint and various techniques over the years with sales figures reaching nearly 3 million. Annie is also involved with interior design jobs both residential and commercial. She is currently involved in a cafe in the centre of Oxford as well as a town house.


Annie is an art school graduate which is what makes her paint and colours different from all the other paint companies. She has studied paint, paint mixing and paint used in interiors, particularly on furniture from the eighteenth century and also has a passion for 20th century art. This is reflected in her range of colours and the way in which she makes textures and combines colours. The paint has been designed with the busy creative person in mind so the paint is highly pigmented, covers well and easily so furniture needs no sanding or priming so you can get on with painting and creating straight away. The paint is stocked by many stores, mainly interior decoration stores in the UK, and Europe and now we are beginning in the USA with http://www.usajoliedesign.com/
