Ann has worked as a painter and teacher in Virginia, California, Hawaii, North Carolina and the Republic of the Philippines. She has had numerous one-woman shows and has received many awards and commissions. Her work is contained in private and corporate collections.
“Control of spontaneity is one of the contradictions of watercolor for me. The transparency of the washes bringing solid objects to life is the other. I love looking at the world around me and capturing the quality of light and dark. To “see” with excitement and passion, I strive to have something distinctive to say about my personal vision. I enjoy the bold use of color and brushwork to achieve an enhanced space and light creating a heightened realism. I reach outward for my work rather than inward, but have a profound inward joy of seeing and painting as expressed in the style and spirit of my work.”
