Ann Vann: Drawing, Studio 2025
“Bite your tongue at this cliché: I have loved art since I was young. I studied sculpture & drawing at Birmingham-Southern College, where I earned my BFA.
A distinctly narrative quality emerged from my work. In any material or style, my art wants to tell a story. Because of this quality, I found myself drawn (bad pun! bad!) towards illustration.
I work primarily in pen and ink, but I like experimenting with other materials. My sculpture background has led me to generally favor pattern & texture over color. I find inspiration from old science books, nature, and fairy tales.”
