Annie Sloan was born in Australia, but her parents move to the United Kingdom where where she grew up, and graduating from University with a degree in fine arts. Early on she made her living painting murals for wealthy clients, and then went into her own paint business.
Today she has a world wide, well known brand called the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. No, the paint does not have chalk in it, but is known for its smooth, chalk-like matt when it dries.
The paint is also very easy to mix colors, which is unusual for any commercial paint, but not with Annie Sloan's. The paint needs no primer, no sanding, but can be applied just as it is, and it turns out a very smooth, and solid looking finish. In many applications, a soft wax is brushed onto the finished product, which gives the piece a very elegant look.
Currently, there are Annie Sloan Stockists (which is what the independent outlets for the paint are called.) This is normally where people go to buy the paint, and currently there are paint stockists in the United Kingdom, North America, Africa, Asia, Latin America 7 The Caribbean, Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East. That is a large swath of the world to have conquered in such a short space of time, but this is the way of the world with Annie Sloan Paint.
