New Ink Art
I have two new drawings to share: the River Otter was commissioned
by the Sacramento
Zoo and the
Peregrine Falcon started as a demo in one of my ink on scratchboard classes. Both
originals are currently available for sale. Click on either critter
to find out more and for links to blog posts about each drawing.
If you're interested in either drawing, or have questions, please contact me.

Me on Twitter
Networking is Part of the Business
If you're involved in the social networking world, you can connect with me through
Twitter and/or my Facebook Fan Page. I started
Facebook. I'm not trying to convert anyone who's not
interested, but from my perspective, spending time on
the social networks is fun and I've made connections
with lots of nice people who share my interests in art
and animals. Not to mention that it's a fairly easy way
to broadcast information about my art business. I love
what I do, but it is a business and I'm always looking
for ways to market my work.
Fan Page is my professional persona on Facebook, if you want
a glimpse of the "regular (but still artistic) Ann", I also have
a Facebook profile page with a feed from my Twitter account.
You can also find my photos on Flickr, videos on YouTube and connect with me
on LinkedIn. Although, I'll admit, I'm not very active on LinkedIn - there's only so much time for social networking!
Available for My Bonanzle or Etsy Shops
art is available on both
Bonanzle and Etsy, where you'll find original works and an assortment of critter
art on note cards, reproduction prints, earrings and magnets.
I recently learned how to make gift certificates through
PayPal, so these are now an option for my Bonanzle and Etsy
shops. If you want to buy someone a gift of animal art, but
aren't sure exactly what to get for them, you can purchase
a gift certificate instead. You specifiy the amount from
a drop-down list and you can either print the certificate
or have it e-mailed to the
there's no single shop that meets all my needs, I sell my work
through a number of on-line venues. For links to all shops and

Saturday, September 25th, 10am - 5pm
the first time in at least 10 years, I've decided not to
participate in the Annual Autumn Art Studios Tour. I just
felt it was time
for a change and it's something I've been contemplating for
a couple of years now. But I really enjoy meeting my clients
about my art and techniques with them, friends and family,
so I've decided to have an independent one-day
show this year. I'll send official invitations to my local
subscribers in September, but I thought I'd put the word
out now so you can mark your calendars. Because I don't have
an official studio that I can open to the public, I'll
out my wares in our spacious garage, which is what I've done
for past Studios Tours. There will be plenty of art in a range of prices, refreshments and hourly raffles
for a discount on the day's purchases of in-stock art.
