Ann studies the interaction of light and color in the tradition of California Impressionism. Ann always looks for strong and unusual compositions and color combinations. She creates art that reflects the vibrancy of nature and her love of close observation of the landscape.

It has been a pleasure to watch Ann experiment with style, technique, and form as she has developed as an artist over time. Some sixteen years after I acquired my first painting from Ann her works can be found in nearly every room of my home, and have become an integral part of my collection and life.

Ann is one of my favorite plein air painters, and I would gladly devote a room of my house as a gallery of her work. I commissioned a pastel combination of several photographs I took of the plain of temples near Pagan, Burma. ...for me, the painting recreates the thrill of experience. Ann wasn’t there, but her perceptive hand puts me there every time I gaze at it.
