Ann is a still life and landscape oil painter in the tradition of classical realism. She uses the Western New York land, sky, and water as inspiration for her art. By manipulating shapes into patterns and movement, organizing her palette with complementary colors, and softening and blurring edges, Ann creates paintings with a universal emotional quality.
Light is the essence of her work, and is presented as an essential spiritual element. Light is warmth, light is life, and light is day. Light is color, form, shadow, and reflection. As one reflects on what the dark and light may mean in her work, one might feel sadness, despair, joy, and happiness.
