Anne-Marie’s voice is confident, reassuring, warm and luxurious with a beautiful sophisticated tonality that naturally engages audiences. She has taken a life-long passion and crafted her skills with elegance and dedication. Her voice age range is thirty upwards, encompassing Lancashire (UK), Irish, French and Italian accents.
The spoken word is Anne-Marie’s first love, from an early age she was enchanted by how voice and acting, especially within theatre, brings the magic of stories and imagination to life.
Anne-Marie began her training in elocution lessons at age 8, igniting her enthusiasm for reciting poetry and prose, sight reading, performing monologues and duologues. Continuing into teenage years she undertook examinations from Grades 1 to 8, qualifying as an Associate of the London College of Music & Drama at age 19.
Over the years, Anne-Marie has also performed live on stage in a wide variety of roles for theatre groups and actor highlights include: Ruth in Blithe Spirit at the Charter Theatre in Preston; Maggie Hobson in Hobsons Choice at Hoghton Tower; Olivia in Twelfth Night at Blackburn Empire Theatre; Aladdin and Dick Whittington in local pantomimes.
As part of the marketing team for The Grand Theatre in Blackpool, Anne-Marie deepened her knowledge of voice acting as an inspirational way to connect with audiences. Whether a story, script, poem or corporate message, the power of voice to engage the listener is timeless.
A booking for a pre-performance announcement for Blackburn Empire Theatre opened the door to expanding her acting and performance skills to realise a life-long aspiration of becoming a voice artist. Anne-Marie has recently undertaken professional coaching in voice over techniques from one of the UK’s leading and most experienced female voice over artists, Tanya Rich, and has a professional recording studio to deliver the highest quality voice over work either directly or from within clients’ production studios.
Anne-Marie’s extensive experience working within the corporate sector at a senior level has provided her with the benefit of insight on how best to hold the attention of business audiences with expertise and precision.
