Ann-Marie’s life as a Buddhist Chaplain, psychotherapist and coach informs her artwork on many levels. As a result she enjoys working with a multitude of creative materials.
Moving to Santa Fe in 1979 she began working as a solo fiber artist spinning, dying, weaving and knitting original works of art. Her work was discovered by Lord & Taylor in 1982. Within a year her small adobe studio off Canyon Road grew in reputation and became an international textile and texture business with over 600 retail outlets. During that time her studio supplied hand-dyed specialty yarns for the Broadway production of Cats.
Currently Ann-Marie’s artistic focus radiates from the lens of a deep relationship with the dharma while being supported by a community of loving friends. Many collectors find that the artwork appears to change from day to day, giving a variety of different symbols to work with throughout their lifetime.
Currently her focus is working on all levels with the formlessness and form of Ensos.
Ann-Marie lives and breathes It’s never too late to be who you might have been.
