Ann Marie Vaughn
Ann Marie Vaughn has always found joy in sharing her art with others. Her first major recognition occurred as a high school student, when her drawing of a “Back Stage Scene” was selected to represent American art at the World’s Fair in Brussels, Belgium. Now her award-winning paintings and prints can be found in homes, galleries, and corporations throughout the United States and Europe.
Ann’s versatility enables her to accept commissions to paint any subject requested from life or on location. Realistic impressionism is her favorite style in painting flowers, figures, and landscapes. As a portraitist, she is known for her ability to capture a fresh likeness while developing a fine art composition. She travels extensively and has discovered interesting people and motifs to paint in Morocco, Hawaii, Mexico, Caribbean, Canada, Great Britain, France, Ireland, Italy, and the United States. She works in oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, and mixed media.
She holds a Bachelors degree in art from Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts, and a Master of Arts from Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Institute of Art. In 1989, she was certified as a visual art specialist. Most of her teaching has been in high school, community college, and private classes. She conducts workshops and classes around the country and in her studio near Richmond. She has been included in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World.
