Ann speaks about her art: “I discovered my passion for abstract art when I was encouraged to take a class after a friend of mine saw a rock, yes, a rock, I had painted for a garden in 2009.  I took my Mother’s art class and fell in love with abstract art.  I paint primarily with acrylic and mixed media elements, including charcoal, pastels, modeling paste, tar gels; anything that can add texture to my canvas.  I will also incorporate items from nature like bark, leaves, and even salt to add interest.”

Ann lives in Harrisburg with her three children and works full-time as an executive assistant. She is also an active member of the Mixed Media Art Group.
