Ann was one of the founders and the leader of Alla Prima
International. A wonderful teacher and artist, Ann is remembered
through her works and through the many students and friends she helped
over the decades.
Thirty years ago my mindset became a focus - to thoroughly understand, breathe, smell and taste the landscape. A long painting endeavor began. It continues each day with new intensities, new subleties, new messages and new creations taking place.
In the meantime I have come to understand the magnificent application of paint to a surface, and even more so have learned to enjoy the trip rather than the product
I wish to touch my viewer with some of the beauty that surrounds us - to let others understand some of my vision.
