Ann studied photography for ten years at Northern VA Community College, as well as at The International School of Photography in New York, and various workshops over the years. She was a founding member of Factory Photoworks gallery in 1985 (now Multiple Exposures) in the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria VA, and kept a studio in the art center there until moving to Virginia Beach in 2009.

While working in photography she studied and used many different
techniques- black/white infrared, hand-colored infrared, 4 x 5 large format, images from Polaroid prints, cyanotype (blueprint) images, as large as 30” x 48” on heavy watercolor paper, and photographs made from 1930’s home movies. Eventually the hand-coloring led Ann back to painting, a pursuit from an earlier life. She studied painting at the Va. Museum, Smithsonian, The Art League, Springmaid and privately. Her recent work has been with acrylic incorporating collage.

In her years at the Torpedo Factory she had four solo shows, was in numerous juried exhibits, winning many awards in the Washington area, and at the Peninsula Gallery in Newport News. Her work is in many private and corporate collections both here and abroad. She has recently joined The Artists Gallery, 608 Norfolk Ave, (9th St) Va Beach, VA.

Her prices range from $100 for small photos to $3000 for larger paintings.
