Hi, I am Ann Skinner, a Life Coach and Doodle Advocate and Heartworker.

I am the creator of Doodle Annie and founder of The Heartworker's Way. Through my work, I love to bring wellbeing, empowerment & change to lives by combining the power of coaching and doodling.

Check out my Doodle Courses

Learn to Doodle with Ann The Heartworker, creator of Doodle Annie.

You will be inspired to create heart-led visuals by drawing yourself into your loving heart and back out onto the page and beyond.

No drawing skills are required as this process is all about creating heartwork rather than artwork.

About The Illustrator

Doodle advocate, coach, author, lover of life, nature, family, dogs, doodling, singing, colours, views and so much more …

It took a while before I found my true path, allowing me to add many strings to my bow and giving me a unique perspective on life.

In 2016, a divinely inspired moment awakened my love for doodling. This was the missing link I needed to help process my emotions in a loving and playful way and it unleashed my innate creativity. Doodling has revolutionised my life and work and I now share my passion with others.

From that point on I started to remember who I was and what I loved to do: Work from the heart, enjoy life’s simple pleasures, share my gifts with the world and help others do the same. This is how I became Ann The Heartworker and, since then, I started to share more about what I have come to call living life The Heartworker’s Way.

Apart from sharing my joy for doodling, I am also the Author and Illustrator of The Art of Contribution, which became a #1 seller in Amazon’s Spiritual Gift department, and Annie and Eva Love Devon, which was inspired by my love for countryside walks around Devon, my dog Eva and doodling.

Born and bred in The Netherlands, I have traveled to many countries but my heart belongs in the UK, where I have lived for much of my adult life with my husband of 30+ years and rescue dog Honey (sadly I lost my dear Eva in March 2023).
