Annette is a craft-maker who works with instantly recognisable confectionary items, or iconic products such as cassette tapes. Her work deals with nostalgia, memories, past  times – the visit to a sweet shop as a child, or how we used to listen to music. Annette is fascinated by consumer goods that are no longer used –  the thrown away and casually discarded items of everyday life.  Her work questions this throw away society, in which sustainability and reducing waste is still a utopian dream, with the hand-crafted object questioning the start of luxury, craft and consumerism.
