Hello Annie. I've looked for you online for a while - and now here you are. I moved back to Northern Ireland in 2005 but I visit England a lot. What amazing paintings! I was in Pallant House in August but didn't know then that you'd exhibited there.

love

Beth

Dearest Annie,

I love your paintings especially the midsummer collection, the autumn leaves and the self destruct ones!

Many congratulations for finding that art is a way you can channel and navigate your way through what can be a difficult life. Thank you for sharing your heartfelt story and wonderful gifts. You have inspired me in more ways than you may know xxx :-)

Hi Annie -

Powerful images - if you'd be interested in being interviewed for a forthcoming book on art practice and mental health please do get in touch.

It would be great to hear expanded thoughts on some of the points you put forward in the two interviews I have come across.

All the best!

I too was very moved by your story. I can still remember your mischievous giggle from Guildford High School days!

These are moving works of art, brave and profound. They are an insight into depression and beautiful. They made me contemplate for some time, like all good art. Thank you.

Love the variety. Madonna has a sickly smile. Crows remind me of something I can't quite work out. Easy on the PVA.

I have read an article about you in You magazine, suffering from mental health problems myself, I found it extremely inspiring, and your artwork is very unique and special.

I wish you every success in the future, and will be looking out for more of your artwork. Best wishes.

I have just read of your story and why you started painting.

I was reminded of my own past, when as a youngster I was going through something like this myself. I felt that I had no voice. No way to explain to anyone what my feelings and thoughts were at that time. I learned to play the cello and found that it gave me my voice. I could play well, but I also had was able to express my emotions through the music. It wasn't uncommon for my teacher to see performing a piece of music with tears on my face. That seemed to give me that extra something that made my music stand out and people paid attention. I can feel that special something when viewing your artwork. This piece of work, The Full Moon Underwater is a reminder to me that something so real and beautiful can in fact be just an illusion. I would love to have this piece of work in my home. God bless you Annie. You have a voice and you are coming through loud and clear.

I don't know you but i'm very proud of you for getting through this and finding your way. Sometimes you have to go to the bottom to start climbing up again. Best Wishes.

I recognised your picture in the MOS. So glad that your 'different life' makes you feel lucky now. Do you remember Heath Road, Woking & Guildford High?

Loved Madonna though irreverently she reminded me of a Weeble

THE FULL MOON UNDER WATER IS A WONDERFUL PIECE, VERY DETAILED AND ATMOSPHERIC. IS IT A LITHOGRAPH OR PEN AND INK?

Hi. I chanced upon your R4 interview today and just wanted to say thank you for the open and eloquent way you talked about depression and art. I thought I was the only one who had that feeling of being worried art would go away! I turned to poetry rather than painting and, although my story is very different to yours, your words struck many chords. Thank you again and best of luck.

P.S If you would like to read some of my work it is at www.theelusiveandrewsmith.wordpress.com

In these pieces there are some very interesting surface qualities.
