Originally from Eastern Washington, Ann now lives on the peninsula of Samish Island in rural Skagit County. She is inspired by this rural landscape wedged between the Cascade Mountains and the Salish Sea. Her hand-cut paper artworks reflect an interest in environmental challenges to native habitats in this intertidal region and across the Northwest. After completing graduate courses at Washington State University and receiving a MA from Eastern Washington University she joined the tenured faculty in the art department at Skagit Valley College in 1986. Since retiring from teaching in 2008 she has worked full time in her studio, exhibiting throughout Washington, Idaho, Oregon and California and she is a member of Northwest Designer Craftartists and Earth Creative. Ann also served on the Boards of the Anacortes Arts Festival and Anchor Art Space and as a member of the Education Committee for the Museum of Northwest Art. She also participates as a citizen scientist surveying beach debris for COASST (Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team) and monitoring Great Blue Heron for the Skagit County Heron Foraging Study. She received an Artist Trust GAP grant in 2010 and attended the Brush Creek Ranch Residency in Wyoming in 2017. Her work can be seen in the collections of Kent City Hall, Kent, WA, Island Hospital in Anacortes WA, Skagit Regional Clinics, Mount Vernon,WA, and the King County Public Art Collection.
