Ann continually refines her
creative senses by merging
color, line, figure and often
integrates special materials
to generate powerful
artistic statements. With no
distinct subject matter or
destination, the intrinsic
meanings of the images
have the ability to alter and
adapt to the unique psyche
of the viewer; thus creating
a very personal and
intimate liaison.
