About Annie Sloan

Yes, Annie Sloan is a real person. She lives and works in Oxford, England, with her husband David who runs the business with her, and her three sons, all in their twenties. She set up her shop in the year 2000 to showcase her Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan, run courses, and offer interior design services using her vast colour knowledge. Today, she is arguably the world’s most respected expert in decorative paint, colours and techniques.

Trained as a painter and with a background in fine art, she turned to decorative work after university, and has been painting for over 40 years. Her now famous Chalk Paint™ is the result of her vast knowledge of paint, pigments and art history. Luckily for us, she readily shares her knowledge with her skilled writing, and has published more than 20 books on the subject of traditional paint, colours and techniques. Her books have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 11 languages. She also tours the world giving workshops and lectures to sold-out audiences.

Her easy, lively and creative approach to painting is probably the main reason for the painted furniture revolution, and her enthusiasm and strong desire to communicate and empower people creatively has led to her many books, workshops and her namesake paint. Along with her unique and versatile decorative paint, Chalk Paint™, Annie has inspired generations with her accessible, lively and creative approach to getting great results.

The Annie Sloan range is synonymous with excellent results that are easy to use and fun to achieve. Her products are exclusively available through Annie’s network of independent Stockists who are located all over the world. J’Adorn is delighted to be among the fine Stockists to bring you this amazing line.
