Project Description

My inspiration comes from exploring different mediums and genres.  I challenge myself continually to capture the beautiful moments seen and experienced on our West Coast beaches or by creating a painting that captures an emotion and atmosphere that the viewer can suggest their own emotive response to.

My ultimate goal is to produce paintings that make people stop, pause and escape for a moment, maybe capturing a memory, or just enjoying the beauty in front of them.

Artist Statement

Ann challenges herself continually to capture the beautiful moments seen and experienced on our West Coast beaches. Using pastel or acrylic as her mediums of choice, Ann’s ultimate goal is to produce paintings that make people stop, pause and escape for a moment, maybe capturing a memory, or just enjoying the beauty in front of them.

Light plays such a big part in her painting process, Ann especially loves that time on the beach when the day is starting to cool, the shadows are creeping past the sand dunes, changing from hues of pinks to purple and blue as the sun sets and you can contemplate the wonderful day that has been had.

“The ocean holds a deep interest for me, it is a fascinating magical beauty.  It is a constantly changing mood board, one day dynamic, grey, angry and the next playful, vibrant and blue.
