Ann Hair is an award winning artist who finds her inspiration in nature while traveling or in her own backyard. After careers in advertising, graphics, interior design and teaching, painting revealed itself as her passion.
Ms. Hair loves working en pleinair and from life. Her pleinair work is featured in “Painting North Carolina, Impression en Pleinair” and was shown at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh. When it’s too hot or cold to venture outdoors, she concentrates on painting figures and is challenged to paint models each week.
“My latest challenge is to capture the landscape or figure, “alla prima” (in one sitting). This brings energy, freshness and excitement to the work.”
Always pushing to try new things, her bold, palette knife paintings command attention.
A graduate of the fine arts program at Daemen College, Buffalo, NY, Ms. Hair continues to study with nationally acclaimed artists. Her work has won awards in national and local shows and is in collections worldwide.
