Ann was born in Jackson Heights, New York and received her Bachelor in Fine Arts and Master of Science in Art Education from Massachusetts College of Art (Mass Art) in Boston, MA. For ten years she worked, taught, exhibited and juried shows in the Boston area.

While raising her son, she wrote and blogged for Intel, IBM and Dell. Her work was published by Forbes, Gigaom and Wired.

Today, Ann works with acrylic paint, found objects and oil sticks to create direct sculptural paintings. She complements bold strokes with playful drawing and found objects to bring humor and mystery to her imagery. Ann often creates an intimate experience by inviting viewers to open a door or look inside a box to see the work.

She sculpts her paintings paint in a small studio in North Austin where she lives with her dog Vivi.
