Ann Hayes

"I describe my style as "natural realism, "capturing the everyday beauty found in both nature and man-made artifacts."

- Ann Hayes

 

     The water color paintings are created by building multiple layers of transparent paint, requiring careful observation and planning.  The luminous quality is perfectly suited to water and sky - two of my favorite subjects.  Working only in transparent watercolor has many technical challenges that keeps it interesting, there is never a point where you have completely mastered the medium.

I started my art studies as a teenager working with notable New York artist Earl Tyler at his summer studio in Bay Head.  I learned traditional methods of perspective, value and figure painting.  I have a degree in Painting and Art Education from Douglas College.  My work has been featured in books and magazines published by Jersey Shore Publishing including “Down the Shore Once More,” “Long Beach Island Rhapsody” and “Jersey Shore Magazine.”
