As an artist, I enjoy working in a variety of art media.  When I am painting, I usually work in watercolor. In May of 2019, I was featured in the Mankato Magazine (Vol 14, Issue 5, pg. 13) with an article by Leticia Gonzales called, The Education of Ann Obernolte, Children and travels have influenced the Mankato artist.

I sold thirty-five paintings and prints, all while receiving encouraging feedback from friends and fellow artists. My grant award and the related art show, and my participation in the Waseca Center for the Arts show, were published in the PLRAC newsletter in 2018 and 2019. One public firm and more than fifty individuals own my art work. 
I exhibited in the Carnegie Art Center juried art shows in 2016 and 2015. In May of 2016, at the request of an art teacher, I exhibited my work at two elementary schools in Mankato. In September of 2016, I submitted two paintings to the Prairie Lakes Regional Juried Art Exhibition in St. Peter. Both paintings were accepted into the show, and I was awarded a Merit Award for my painting, Wintry Birch. Articles and recognition about my Merit Award were published in the PLRAC newsletter (October 2016) [...]
