Ann’s work features a unique combination of calligraphy and paper collage. She is known for bringing words to life with colorful design via a variety of mediums including inks, watercolor, crayon, pens and papers from across the globe. She focuses on positive, thought-provoking words that illuminate life with color and design. Here is how she describes her work:

Art is not just something to look at, it is something that inspires people to learn, think, and then act differently. Watching people read my work, think about what is written and then ponder the ideas and beauty my art conveys is a true blessing. Being able to take words and bring them to life via calligraphy and paper arts is an amazing gift. My hope is that my art gives people inspiration, causes them to think, and encourages them to move forward in their lives in a positive manner.

Ann also specializes in creating unique gifts and writing on a variety of surfaces. – wedding and anniversary gifts, graduation as well as birth announcements, custom pieces for special celebrations, she creates murals and works on a variety of wood items.
