Ann Warner is an award-winning oil painter and a native of Franklinton, Louisiana. She has exhibited in regional and national shows, museums and galleries, and her work can be found in corporate and private collections across the United States.

Ann concentrates her work in the landscape, still life, and portraiture. Inspired by her travels from Maine to Santa Fe, the Bahamas to the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, and Italy, each trip affords her “the opportunity to vary, stretch, and grow” her work.

Ann has a Bachelor of Science degree from LSU, and was mentored by the late Carl Thorp, a noted oil colorist, and many other noted artists. Favorite painters who have influenced Ann’s work are Sorolla, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Monet, and N. Fechin.
