Ann teaches painting and drawing with an emphasis on composition, perceptual observation, color and surface.  Her philosophy is simple – the visual arts should be visually compelling, pulling you in and making you see!  Ann has a BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Virginia, an MFA in Painting from American University, and had a year of postgraduate study at the Fine Arts Academy in Munich, Germany.  Awards include a Fulbright Scholarship in Painting, the Annette Kade Fine Arts Fellowship, the David Lloyd Kreeger Award, and the Art Prize from UVA.  Ann is an Adjunct Professor of Art at Georgetown University, and has taught extensively at area schools including AU, Maryland, NVCC and the Smithsonian.

“Art is a constant seeking, a honing of sensibilities, a push and pull to find the right line, color, tone and texture within a dynamic composition.”
