Ann Stockdale is a Creative who started her career as an actress after graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. After a stint on Broadway and a few film appearances, Ann became interested in developing her creative ideas in a way that expressed her own world vision. She met many influencial writers and musicians, such as Stan Getz, Willie Nelson, Jimi Hendrix, Steve Winwood (with whom she recorded one of her original songs), and Dr. John, who played piano on several of her tunes.

Always in the background of her young life was her passion for rhythm and color which culminated in her growing desire to express herself visually. Ann began in earnest to devote a large portion of each day painting 35 years ago. Her paintings have been sold through many galleries throughout the United States. She's also known for having developed a Tropical Series of 4,000 prints which were sold on the Princess Cruise Line. Her paintings were the focus of a One Woman Show at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle. Her work has been presented in the Corcoran Museum in Washington DC. Ann is also an accomplished singer/songwriter who has recently produced four CDs with the finest blues and rock musicians in the NW (i.e., Annieville Blues and Rod Cook). Her music can be found on CD Baby, Spotify, and other streaming services.
