Ann Stockdaleis a colorist , painting in oils since the 70’s. She considers the Creative  Spirit, which is in each of us, to be the door to self knowledge and happiness.

Fred La Mott, Poet and Professor at Evergreen Collegesays of Ann’s work :“You are Chagall,  but naked,  running through a field of poppies, drunk on Sunlight”.Ann says of her work that she bonds with Unseen Beneficial forces and  welcomes the impulse of Universal Energy to join her in Joy with her Creator . 

 Her paintings have been seen at the Corcoran in D.C and her work has been the focus of a One Woman Show at the Frye Museum in Seattle. Her paintings can be seen in many hotels throughout Florida, California and Mexico. Her prints can be purchased on the Princess cruise Line and she has been   associated with many Fine Art Galleries through the years.   


Ann says of her abstract art, "My motivation is Color and Rhythm ,activating the healing impulse  of love brought through the Spirit World . The expression of joy with my Maker. The small unique piece, which is me, linking with the larger 'I am' in all."

Born in Miami, Florida, she  lives with her husband Don  in Gig Harbor, WA. Ann has lived the major portions of her life in Miami, California, London, England, and the Pacific Northwest. She moved from her hometown of Miami when her father was appointed US Ambassador to Ireland under President Kennedy. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, where she emerged in such shows as the "Establishment Review", and on Broadway  in  "Hail Scawdyke", directed by Alan Arkin. She also worked with Jonathan Demme, Director of "Silence of the Lambs" in his first movie..Ann is a singer /songwriter and has recorded 3 CD's of original music.
