Ann is known for her creation of tiny worlds based on her personal and contemporary world experience. She calls these works 'Aislingariums': a self-created word which comes from 'aisling' (pronounced ashling), an Irish Gaelic word meaning dream or vision; and the word 'arium' which is a suffix used to denote a place or container, e.g. Planetarium.
Ann's 2D work has evolved from realistic to semi-abstract, but she has always drawn from nature to inform her work. Her most recent paintings and wall art often begins with watercolour, but also incorporates ink, coloured pencil, ink, collage, gold leaf and resin.
Ann incorporates all sorts of materials, hard and soft, often upcycling to create whimsical objects and sculptures, both for outside and inside. Go for a walk on the whimsy side.
