Annie Giles Hobbs is a practicing artisit and lecturer in Fine Art at Cardiff School of Art & Design.

She has taught since 1992 at The Cardiff Print Workshop where she was Head of Printmaking until 2008, stepping down due to other commitments. She is now coordinator and continues to give masterclasses in specialist areas.

Annie is a member of Butetown artists, a group of artists who work from a studio and Gallery complex in Bute street, Cardiff Bay. She is also a Director of the Gallery and Studios.

She is a member of Virtually Six Contemporary Printmakers and has exhibited widely with them both nationally and internationally. At present she is taking part in collaborations with artists showing in Australia and India.

Annie is supported by the Arts Council of Wales

Her work is print based but breaks with the traditional expectations of printmaking. Each piece is unique and takes many months to complete. The density of these works is impressed by multi plate etching, collagraph and monoprinting whose qualities build up a richly worked top surface , whilst partially revealing underlying areas of texture and imagery.
