Ann Phelan

San Francisco

Meticulous and curious, her quiet observation leads to endless discoveries of the intimate realm. 


Tiny brush strokes bring about thoughtful constellations of free details, precise places, and lead one into the unknown. Ann's process is one of awareness, struggle, symbolism and reality. Her paintings, are small imaginary worlds, which travel into an intimate and fantastical dimension. Like her.


Ann studied painting at Barnard College and Columbia University, New York. Her beginnings were expressionist and instinctual and have evolved into a reflective expansive and thoughtful practice.  Ann's studio is in Inverness, on the northern california coast  surrounded by fog, deer and vegetation. She has exhibited through out California and New York City.
