Working on a small scale, Ann explores a range of subjects both representationally and abstractly using a variety of techniques which include watercolour, acrylic, print making and mixed media.
In her abstract art, Ann is fascinated by the complexity, beauty, and depth of expression possible when creating abstract works and using different techniques and media to explore the basic elements of art. The splendour of the Canadian landscape particularly in Autumn is a favourite subject, and maple leaves have been an ongoing theme in her art because of the beauty of their natural form and structure which she sees as both representational and abstract.
Ann Manson is a retired educator, a long time Hamiltonian and lover of the arts. She has enjoyed a long association with the the Art Gallery of Hamilton both as a docent and as a leader of adult studio sessions there.
