Biography

DebStudioFaceDown300x400

Ann lives and works in Marquette, an upper Michigan town that sits on the southern shore of Lake Superior. Her ceramic work is strongly influenced by the natural world around her, a love of simple and elegant architecture, and a childhood fascination with the objects used for enacting sacraments from her Catholic upbringing.

Ann welcomes the opportunity to work with clients in designing something special. Please contact her for more information. Thank you for visiting this website!
