Hi, I’m Anne! Welcome to my little part of the world: Anne’s Art & Design Space. I am a brand and business strategist. I’m also a self-taught graphic designer working in Canva and a self-taught artist.
How I Got Here
I immigrated to Australia from the UK with my family when I was 12. At 15, I left school for work. Soon after, I got married, had a daughter, and became a single mom.
For the next 40 years, I worked in the field of aged care. I have had over 22 years experience as the CEO and company secretary for a group of multi-faceted private companies. I also served as an Executive Director on its Board of Directors for a further 5 years. During my tenure, I doubled the size of the organization.
During that time, I directed all aspects of the organization, including management systems, customer service, strategic planning, budgeting, continuous improvement, education programs, and building projects, to name but a few. I also managed the business’s marketing and re-branding on several occasions!
I have a Diploma in Business Management and Certificates in Health Services Management and Training and Assessment.
Anne’s Art & Design Space
Since leaving aged care I have taken up painting again and started my own online business. I help women in business create or elevate their branding to the next level by developing a personalized and unique brand identity that stands out in the crowd. I also help with business and strategic planning, customization, and comprehensive support services.
I do this through my collection of digital products. These include the DIY Branding Kit, Brand Strategy Workbook, business and strategic planning tools, and branded social media and other business templates.
My life and business are still evolving, and I look forward to what the future brings. I’d love to help you on your journey! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, and you can message me anytime.
