Ann Murphy was born in Montague, PEI where she started sketching at a very young age. At that time horses were her favourite subject.
Over time, Ann has taught herself to paint. Her medium of choice is acrylics. Many of her earlier works were painted on wood but she now paints on canvas as well. Ann also enjoys working with watercolours and coloured pencils. She somehow brings to life the old barns and Maritime scenes she so enjoys depicting. Her love of nature is also reflected in the lovely flora and fauna she so brilliantly captures.Having traveled extensively and lived in numerous places around the world, Ann still finds the Canadian Maritimes and her home in Port Elgin to be the most inspiring scenery for her paintings.
