Ann Sherry and Michael Hogan – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

There’s nothing usual about today’s garden, located in the Sydney suburb of Annandale, and owned by Ann Sherry and her husband Michael Hogan.

Ann is the CEO of Carnival Australia, and has received an order of Australia medal! She’s also an avid gardener. Five years ago, the pair bought ‘The Abbey’, one of Sydney’s most unusual and iconic residential properties, built in 1882. Ann was keen to restore the dilapidated garden to its former glory.

Our gardens columnist, Georgina Reid of The Planthunter recently caught up with Ann to learn a little more about the garden she has spent the last five years creating.

The Amazing Art-Making Of Thea Anamara Perkins

Artist Thea Anamara Perkins is an Arrernte and Kalkadoon woman, with family ties to the Redfern community in Sydney. At just 29 years old, she’s been nominated for the Archibald Prize for the last three consecutive years, with her confident and courageous painting style. She imbues people and landscapes with emotion and vulnerability, and is known for her personal portraits of prominent First Nations figures.

Among her other accolades (she was a finalist in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, The Alice Prize 2020 and has exhibited as part of Tarnanthi) Thea won the Australia Council’s Dreaming Award for emerging First Nations artists in 2020, which she plans to use to develop workshops with the Tangentyere Town Camp Artists in Mparntwe (Alice Springs). On top of that, she is a NATSIAA finalist for 2021, and is about to launch her first ever solo show – Shimmer – this month.

In case you haven’t worked it out yet, this is one young artist destined for very big things.
