The Artist Says:

Having devoted years to conservation of the environment, I hope that my paintings will remind people how beautiful and precious our natural world his to all of us.


A Fine Arts graduate of George Washington University, Ann attended many classes at the Corcoran School of Art. She has always thought of herself as an artist, from childhood, encouraged by the adults around her, including many gifted teachers. Studying at the High School of Music and Art, and growing up in New York City, art was everywhere, and museums were better than playgrounds.
While she pursued a career in Federal environmental programs, she painted on weekends and vacations, mostly in watercolor, she began to enjoy outdoor art experiences. Now that she can devote her time to art, she loves plein air painting, and hopes that her paintings will be a reminder of how precious our environment is to all of us. She has been juried into many plein air events and group shows in the Washington area, Baltimore, Frederick, Salisbury, Virginia and Pennsylvania, where her work has often received awards. Her art is always on view at Gallery 322 in Frederick, and Gallery 209 in Rockville.
