ABOUT ANNIE'S FASHIONS FROM ORIGINAL ART

Annie Painter (Oregon Annie Artwear) is a life-long arts educator and designer. Her early soft sculpture and artwear was shown at the Portland Art Museum and Contemporary Crafts Gallery and purchased by private clients. After a career as an elementary principal, middle, high school and university art teacher in Oregon she travelled nationally and internationally consulting to schools. In 2018 she returned to her love of applied design and wearable art.

Annie begins with a low tech collage technique used for decades with her students. Using her hand painted and tooled papers she makes collages that are photographed in part, uploaded and applied to pattern templates online. Kimonos, leggings, caps, bags, dresses, swimsuits, prints and scarves are returned to her or customers as finished products. Currently her applied designs are manufactured in the United Kingdom and Montreal at print on demand companies. Annie hopes to create custom designs for teams, dancers, and groups as her Oregon Annie® Artwear evolves.

About Print on Demand

Oregon Annie Artwear is made 'on demand.'  When your order is confirmed, your artwear begins from scratch. Annie's original applied collage designs are printed on bolts of cloth, dyed, cut, sewn, packaged and shipped to you. No warehouse is stocked with inventory.   Plan ahead. Artwear takes time.  These dramatic pieces will be worth the wait.  Currently Oregon Annie Artwear is manufactured at companies in the UK and Montreal with some fulfillment centers in the USA. Some USA customers often find the sizes run small. Be sure to check size charts since print on demand companies rarely deal with returns based on size problems. Contact Annie directly if you want to purchase inventory for your store or to schedule a home or gallery trunk show with inventory that Annie supplies for sale at your site.
