Annie Temmink is a woman of many creative talents. She is a hat and costume maker, an illustrator and an improvisational dancer. Her visually spectacular hat designs from the past year reflect a multitude of cultural influences, stemming from the work Temmink has done with craftspeople in Indonesia, Japan, India, Uganda and Tanzania. -Cville weekly
A Charlottesville-based sculptor and costume designer, Annie Temmink was the recipient of a Watson Fellowship that allowed her to study fashion and textiles around the world. Her time spent with designers in Indonesia, Japan, Uganda, Ghana, Tanzania, and India inspired a love of wild adornment, but materials and a fondness for movement have always inspired her work.
From stints building houses, working in woodshops, fabric dye studios, and alongside celebrity designers in Los Angeles, Annie now works independently. Drawing on a range of fabrication techniques she invents outlandish costumes from everyday objects that celebrate individuality, improvisation, and whimsy. She also loves to dance and forage for plants. Find her on Instagram @artemmink or email:
