Ann Sullivan was born and reared in New York City where she taught Biology at Andrew Jackson High School after graduating from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In the late 70’s she and her husband moved to Cape Cod where they raised their 4 children. She opened the Ann Sullivan Gallery in 1983 and has sold her work through other galleries as well from New York to North Carolina to Florida.
Today she and her husband reside in Naples, FL most of the year where she teaches oil painting for the City of Naples. They return to the beloved Cape Cod home and the gallery for the summer months.
Except for a few classes at Pratt Institute, while she was still in high school, Ann is a self taught artist who has drawn and painted since childhood.
In addition to one-man shows, her work has been included in Museum Exhibitions and has won numerous awards in National and juried shows.
She has taught painting at the various Art Associations across the Cape as well as in Naples and her work has been widely published in regional and national publications, including American Artist magazine.
Her eye catching paintings are filled with beautiful light and color reflected on water, boats, seashore, rainy and snowy city streets, still life, and on figures
