Ann moved to South Carolina with her husband and three children 14 years ago. With no formal training, Ann started painting the year before her fourth child was born, (nine "fast" years ago!). She started in acrylics and changed to oils because of the flow and freedom in which oil lends itself. In the last nine years Ann has enjoyed expanding her knowledge by taking classes and workshops of basic drawing, abstract painting, perspective, and oil painting. She has studied under Brian Rutenberg and Ian Roberts. Ann has recently joined The Sullivan's Island Plein Air Painters group that paints weekly, and she enjoys painting at her home in The Old Village.
