Hi! My name is Ann (as you might’ve guessed). I love pottery, oil painting, drawing, and painting with watercolors equally. I have trouble picking which one to do at any given time.
My dream is to make a living as an artist, in whatever form that takes. I love creating and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my life. Since my mother went to school to be an art teacher, I started painting and drawing as soon as I could hold a paintbrush and pencil (or crayon). I began pottery about 7 years ago. I just thought throwing looked so satisfying and I had to give it a try (yes, it’s just as satisfying to do as it looks… but maybe not as easy). I fell in love with it, and introduced my dad to it. This sparked an obsession in him and led to us putting together a full pottery studio in our barn. We have three kilns, two electric, one gas, and have goals to make more in the coming years.
I live on a 20 acre homestead in Battle Ground, WA with three cats (one pictured below), and two dogs (both pictured below, acting pitiful). I love the pnw so much. The surrounding nature is so beautiful and inspires a lot of my paintings and drawings. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have!
