Annie Tempest was born in Zambia in 1959 and moved to the UK with her family in 1962, after which her father inherited the magnificent Broughton Hall which was later to become the inspiration for Tottering-by-Gently. At the age of 24, whilst working as a medical secretary she began to teach herself how to draw. This, coupled with a love of cryptic crosswords combined to sow the seeds of a career as a cartoonist, initially working for the Daily Mail for seven and a half years with a strip called 'The Yuppies'. In 1989, she was voted 'Strip cartoonist of the year' by her peers in the Cartoonists Club of Great Britain.

Annie created Tottering-by-Gently and joined Country Life magazine in 1993. Her subtle and humorous depictions of Dicky and Daffy Tottering and their family has expanded into a small empire both through syndication and licensing as well as a number of memorable exhibitions abroad in Mexico and New York but also at The O'Shea Gallery. As the Duke of Devonshire commented Tottering-by-Gently is the reason why 'most people read magazines backwards'. In 2009 she won the prestigious Pont Prize for her portrayal of the British Character - the highest accolade in her profession.
