Annette had always had a talent for art, and after saving and scrimping she got the money together for a stained glass course. She became skilled enough at this to start getting paying commissions. Annette grew more confident and then took a big gamble - she moved to the West of England (where her family had moved to London from as a small child) and set up a studio in Bath.
