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 to Hotels and sold in many Galleries and she developed a Tropical Series of 4,000 prints which were sold on the Princess Cruise Line. Her paintings have been the focus of a One Woman Show at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle and her work has been seen in the Corcoran Museum in DC. Although her interest in music is still very much alive, evidenced by the four CD's of original music she has produced since 2005,painting is her main daily activity .. where the Invisables come to communicate with her.
