About the Author

Ann Baldwin was born in London and lived there until 1990 when she came to live in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband. She began painting in 1991, after being a teacher of literature all of her working life. Within 18 months she was exhibiting landscapes in local juried shows.

Initially self-taught, she began studying art history, painting, color theory, drawing and design. She became known as an abstractionist and later developed her text-and-image collages. As a full-time artist, she continues to break rules and experiment.

Wonderful! Review by Kimberly Moore

I once had the opportunity to take a class with Ann. I learned alot and still use some of the techniques in my work. This book brought the class back to me. Nice job.
