Ann is a contemporary painter residing in St. Louis, Missouri. Her focus is primarily but not exclusive to abstract images. Her artistic process began as a child through summer focused art classes and blossomed into a true passion in high school. She attended both Southeast Missouri State University and Southern Illinois University in Carbondale focusing on an art degree. Following college she spent 3 months is Auckland, New Zealand painting and experiencing the life of a kiwi (native New Zealand-er). She then followed her heart to Walnut Creek California. After a short year in beautiful Northern California, she found herself in St. Louis where she still resides today. Life fuels her inspiration and takes the form of textures and vibrant color combinations in her abstract work. Ann has exhibited her art work in group exhibitions including the National Abstract exhibit 2016 Mark Arts | Wichita Center for the Arts as well as local shows in the regional St. Louis Area.
