Annie Williams gained her diploma in Fine Art from City and Guilds Art School.

She has had one-woman shows at the Baker Tilly Gallery, Grape Lane Gallery and Warwick University.
Annie Williams was born in 1942 in London but grew up in Wales. She trained and worked as a nurse before studying art at City and Guilds from 1966 to 1969. Her recent work has been almost entirely still-life. She enjoys playing with shapes, pattern and colour, mixing the familiar with some abstraction, and precision with suggestion. Her foregrounds are a few simple objects, usually pots, and backgrounds are created from textiles or old newspaper cuttings, and even some unfinished paintings as a starting point.
