Bio

TULA Art Center, Fine Art by Ann Rhodes


Celebratory landscapes are the focus of my work. Personal response to the intensity of nature’s force informs my painting in which loose brushwork and overlapping layers of paint represent the complexity of the universe. I am fed by nature’s light and color, comforted by its underlying geometry, awed by its muscularity.” ~Ann Rhodes
