We are proud to announce Ann was juried into the “Shadows on the Teche “ Plein Air painting event this March 9-16 in New Ibernia, LA.  Only 30 painters from across the nation were selected for this event.

Ann has recently begun LIVE EVENT PAINTINGS. 

Growing in popularity, live event paintings capture lasting moments of special occasions. From wedding receptions, Mardi Gras Balls, special parties, and ceremonies, this type of painting provides guest entertainment as they see the painting progress. It is a fine art keepsake.

For a live event painting, she arrives at the location before the guests arrive and begins “setting the stage” by painting in the room or landspace. When the party begins, she paints focal people and guests.
