Ann Hardy’s studio is in a treehouse. She has a small gallery/office in a separate building on her property. Her home is a small, wonderful stucco and rock building overlooking a tributary of water. The large room has a four sided fire place in middle of room with kitchen, eating, TV, and conversation center around the fireplace.
She planned and built all three. Through understanding this, you can see that she is very much an independent thinker and is in touch with her inner child. For Ann, life is fun and focused and hopefully balanced. All subject matter is included in Ann’s work, with an emphasis on still life. She uses a lot of transparent glazes and heavy opaque in a painting.
