Ann studied Graphic Design from 1974 - 1978 and has since worked as a successful designer in publishing. A drypoint evening class was the catalyst for her interest in printmaking, after which she attended a regular workshop to develop printmaking skills.
Ann lives in north west London and works from her garden studio, where she concentrates on creating and promoting her artwork. She also runs regular workshops and classes in printmaking.
Ann's prints are inspired by a fascination with the textures and patterns found in both the natural and man-made landscape around us, as well as a sense of mystery about where things may lead and where they may have originated. She enjoys the direct and rich mark making of the collagraph and monoprint processes, as well as the more precise methods of reduction lino-cut and etching, which probably reflect her graphics background.
Ann exhibits regularly and has work in private collections in this country and abroad, and permanently on display at Greenwich Printmakers Gallery and Southbank Printmakers Gallery. She has exhibited at Bankside RE open, Society of Woman Artists at the Mall Galleries, Affordable Art Fair Battersea and Hampstead, as well as being prizewinner in the 'Inspired by' competition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
