About

Artist Statement of Ann Marie Meuleners

During my childhood years of the 1960’s I grew up in a rural area south of the Twin Cities. My mother, aunt, and grandmother always encouraged me to continue drawing and painting. My perception of the world was greatly influenced by my surroundings of nature and wildlife, as well as the dramatic change of seasons in Minnesota.

While attending the University of St. Catherine I received a B.A. in elementary education and I studied art as well. During the next thirty years of marriage, raising a family, and working as a teacher, my desire to create was always there. I continued to take several artist workshops and college classes which inspired me to work on various methods of portraying a painting.

The subject matter in my work can vary from landscapes, florals, portraits or even an abstract. Before I can begin any painting, the subject matter must mean something to me. From that point, I will work at arranging a composition or design and choose my palette of colors to create a mood within the painting. I have a passion to emphasize full, rich colors and a more free expression within my latest paintings. By using a variety of paints, papers and techniques, my paintings can display many layers. It is my intention to convey a sense of feeling within each painting, and to reach out to the viewer.

I currently live in Glen Ellen, California with my husband of nearly thirty years. I also have joined a local art society in Sonoma with a wonderful group of artists. I enjoy showing my works at local markets and festivals.

Some of my work has been on exhibit and has been purchased by people all around the country. A current collection of my paintings are displayed on the etsy website. I am also available to take private commissions and have items viewed by appointment.

Ann’s top ten reasons why she paints:

I paint because I cannot imagine my life without painting!
I paint because it brings me joy.
I paint to see the reaction I get from others who view my work.
I paint to express a thought, an atmosphere, a movement, a beautiful scene or a memory.
I paint to honor my family, and in remembrance of the encouragement of my mother, aunt, and grandmother.
I paint to release an emotion and give me peace.
I paint to strive to improve.
I paint to share a part of me with others.
I paint because I can hear mentors from my past saying “just keep painting”.
Finally, I paint because it is something I can pass on for future generations to view and enjoy and it allows me to say “I was here!”
