Surrounded by pinons and junipers at the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo
Mountains, Ann Marie lives with her son, The BeeKeeper, in the high
desert country outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
She enjoys working with her students and clients, writing, painting,
xeriscape gardening, hiking and biking the arroyos, and speaking with the
ravens and great horned owls.
Ann-Marie's life as a Buddhist Chaplain, psychotherapist, and coach informs
her artwork on many levels. As a result she enjoys working with a
multitude of creative materials.
Moving to Santa Fe in 1979 she began working as a solo fiber artist spinning, dying, weaving and
knitting original works of art. Her work was discovered by Lord & Taylor in 1982. Within a year her
small adobe studio off Canyon Road grew in reputation and became an international texture and
textile business with over 600 retail outlets. During that time her studio supplied hand-dyed
specialty yarns for the Broadway production of Cats.
Currently Ann-Marie's artistic focus radiates from the lens of a deep
relationship with the dharma while being supported by a community of
loving friends. Many collectors find that the artwork appears to change from
day to day, giving a variety of different symbols to work with throughout
Ann-Marie lives and breathes George Eliot's quote, “It's never too late to be
what you might have been.”
