Ann is an internationally awarded Canadian watercolour artist currently living in British Columbia,
“My inspirations come while traveling around the world or from the people and landscapes close to my home. I capture special moments with my camera and upon being reminded of what caught my eye at the time – the light, an architectural detail, or the posture or expression of a person –I recreate them in my studio. Always with the intent, as a painter, to show something to my viewers in a way they have not seen before.
I want people to like my work but more importantly I want viewers to want to spend time with my work. To look at it more closely to contemplate the narrative of it. To get to know the people they see on the canvas or to travel to the place I have painted.”
