Head and shoulders portrait shot of young woman.
Annie's interest in objects was ignited by regular childhood visits to an inconspicuous Californian bungalow in Bondi.

Inside, its resident, a 95-year-old family friend, packed the house to the rafters with objects from bygone days. The visits led to a keen interest in history, collections and collecting. Annie completed studies in history and museum studies, has co-authored a book and curated a diverse range of social history, photographic and art exhibitions. She continues to work with collections, archives and historic sites to unravel, re-interpret and re-introduce the past to visitors and audiences.
