About Annie Sloan

By leading the decorative painting revolution over the last three decades, Annie Sloan is widely recognised as one of the world's most respected experts in paint and colour.

As well as authoring 26 internationally sold books, Annie Sloan transformed the world of furniture painting with the creation of her own brand of decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, in 1990. Annie’s fine-art background and contagious enthusiasm for decorative painting has motivated both home painters and experienced professionals, unlocking countless creative potentials over the last 30 years.

Annie Sloan is all about sharing her passion for decorative painting, and inspiring people to be creative and adventurous with her paints and colours. Her products are exclusively available through her network of over 1,700 independent Stockists located in 50 countries around the world.

Annie Sloan is one of "Britain's most influential female designers." The Telegraph (UK)

"Annie Sloan has been a household name in interior design since 1990, when she invented her versatile 'Chalk Paint'" – Elle Decoration

"Annie Sloan, the Queen of paint" – The Irish Times

Annie’s Background

Annie trained as a fine artist and turned to decorative work after university in the mid 1970s, whilst painting murals in houses as commissions. By 1987, Annie had written the phenomenally successful book The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques, which is considered to be the industry bible on the subject. Unable to find the paints that she wished to work with, Annie used her knowledge of colour, paint, pigments and art history to develop Chalk Paint® in 1990. In 2000, Annie set up a shop in Oxford to showcase Chalk Paint®, run courses, and offer interior design services.

Annie lives and works in Oxford with her husband David, who runs the business with her. Born in Australia to a Scottish father and a Fijian mother, Annie came to England to a farming life in Kent when she was ten years old. With spells in Southern Africa and connections to France, Cuba and the US, Annie feels she has world roots. Annie has three sons and has lived in Oxford for the last twenty five years.
