Who & Where Is Annex?

Annex Team Michelle Galway and Brina Schenk - makers of mobiles and suspended artBorn in December, 2016. Established in 2018.

Annex Suspended is a brand new idea. A new adventure. A keepsake. A connection to our world. This dream team is always exploring new materials, textures and colours – admiring the diversity, strangeness and wonder of life, both in their imaginations, in every day life and in their travels. Annex aims to translate this wonder and connection through their mobiles and suspended art.

Annex is founded by two artists, Michelle Galway and Brina Schenk, who live in the beautiful and inspiring city of Fernie, British Columbia, Canada.

Michelle Galway, born in Newfoundland, with her background in textiles, carpentry and retail window display design.
Brina Schenk, born in Ontario, brings to the team a history of graphic design, illustrating and painting. Visit her illustration and painting gallery Annex Collections.
