"Look beyond what you initially see with your eyes. Instead open yourself up to your inner self; see with your emotions; experience the beauty and soul that exists in all that is around you."


Born in and raised in New Orleans, Ann (as she likes to be called) has been taking photographs since she was a young child. Her earliest memories were of taking photos of a family event with one of her auntís cameras. Only four at the time, she showed early on that she had a natural ability for the craft.

Self-taught, Annís earliest inspirations came from the works of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. She was fascinated how they used light and shadow in their work. She wanted to do in color what they did in black and white.

Over the years, Ann has developed a strong sense of color, form and texture. She captures in her photographs not just the subject but the emotions and feeling that she senses from her subjects. She has a way of seeing both visually and emotionally what most people overlook.

Several years ago Ann made the slow transition into the digital world. At first reluctant, she soon discovered the digital world offered her more creativity with her work. The best being the digital darkroom.

Accomplishments include several gallery group shows and juried show in and around New York City. Published works can be found in several photography annuals. Awards have included The Award of Excellence in Photography, The Certificate of Excellence in Photography and The Award of Merit in Photography.

Today Ann makes her home in Houston, Texas.
