Ann has been making quilts for over 30 years. She took art classes in college and continued to learn through reading, workshops and experimentation. She began dyeing fabric to have a better range of colours and patterns and has branched out into dyeing silk scarves. Her work has been displayed in Mary Black Gallery and Anna Leonowens Gallery, Halifax, and featured in Fiberarts Design Book Six, and Art Quilts: A Celebration, both published by Lark Books. One of Ann’s quilts was purchased by Nova Scotia Art Bank. Ann lives and works in Mabou.
