Ann Hopp

Early in my life I drew and painted on anything I could. Nature being a constant inspiration.

 

As a young idealistic adult I did spend a few years of study at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland California during the late 70's.

 

I redirected my creativity into the family business of Hairdressing.

It suited me well and led to a long career as a colorist and stylist in Napa Valley, California.

 

After retiring and coming to Colorado I now have that time I wished for. I started oil painting, my first love.

I was  then introduced to Alcohol Ink.

This medium pulls me and pushes me in unexpected directions.

 

It's given me a nontraditional, playful, relaxed and sometimes even frustrating moments.

It's a 'hold on loosely' kind of interaction.

 

I have a new definition of control in this medium. I am blessed to hear how people react to my pieces, the emotion they invoke which is all I can hope for.
