The art of capturing the beauty of babies, the fun and love of families and the magic in any given moment. 

Annie Bananie in a Nutshell

I believe that you are never too old to step out of your box, live your dreams, and do the impossible. I am always striving to learn new things and work on my inner being to be the best person that I can be.  My photography, work with children and workshops are a work of love and passion.  

Singing Tree Daycare

 A space where children get to play, learn through experience and benefit from lots of outdoor play.  


Workshops are a great way to bring people together. They are suitable forgroups of women, parent and child, birthday parities, and organizations. Experience felting at My Studio in the Woods, or  host me your home.  

Everyone leaves with a handmade gift made by them and a smile on their face.  



The process of sculpting wool into wall hangings, slippers, hats, toys has captured the hearts of many. 

Studio in the Woods

By the water's edge, surrounded by trees, this is where you want to be.

My Studio in the Woods is but a hop, skip and a jump from downtown Ottawa. The 40 minute drive is worth it.  The workshop space is filled with natural light and the abundance of windows gives a panoramic view of the lake.  The atmosphere is relaxing and spacious, which makes it a great space to gather people, felt and eat nutritious food.  Annie Bananie's wall of felt holds a rainbow of colours The long tables and benches are perfect for  creating works of art. Come and felt with me. 

Join the celebration! Life is too short not to.

“We did a felting workshop with Annie as a staff bonding activity & it was absolutely fantastic! The felting itself was fun and easy - everyone left with an adorable felted owl - and it was the perfect group activity. While felting everyone chatted - friendships were formed and ideas were shared. We ended the evening with a potluck and we’ve talked about it many times since! I highly recommend a felting workshop with Annie! We’re excited to do it again!
