She has been an instructor at the Lawrence Arts Center for 8 years teaching darkroom and digital photography classes for all ages and also offers private photography lessons.

Ann also works as a freelance photographer shooting weddings & portraits and doing corporate work and has taught classes for the Spencer Museum of Art “It Starts With Art” program. Her main area of fine artwork lies in travel photography. “I appreciate visiting new places and experiencing different cultures around the world. I want to promote education and understanding among people through my photographs.” She has participated in several shows in the Lawrence & Kansas City areas over the years and enjoys passing on her knowledge through teaching.

“I love photography because it gives me a chance to savor the fleeting moments in time that we all take for granted and that give our lives meaning.”
