Chris Ann is an artist who continually explores different techniques and media, often combining and finding non-traditional ways to employ them. The concept of life's perpetual state of flux is inherent in her work. Through the utilization of opaque and transparent layers of line, shape, color and texture she creates dimension and movement within her pieces. Her work explores the figurative as well as the abstract and she is continually inspired by the organic forms and textures found in nature.
Exploring non-toxic printmaking methods has become a passion of Chris Ann’s. She has been exploring safer methods and materials for traditional printmaking techniques. Such as Saline-Sulphate and Solarplate etching. Chris Ann organizes and curates “The Print Parade” artist workshop and exhibition at Dan Welden Studios in Sag Harbor, NY. She teaches printmaking, painting, watercolor, drawing, and 2-Dimensional design classes and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and love for art.
