My name is Ann Simons. I’m an oil painter and I love to paint! I don’t have a formal art education, but I have studied with many outstanding local and national artists. I occupied a studio at the Stutz Building in Indianapolis for several years, where I had the privilege of learning from the talented artists in that building.
I’m an Indiana native and have lived in Indiana my entire life. As a former travel agent of 20 years I have traveled extensively. I enjoy painting the beauty of the many places I have traveled but, beauty in Indiana is my first love. I especially love barns, rural settings, and animals.
I’m a member of the Hoosier Salon, The Hamilton County Artist Association, and The CCA Gallery. I have participated in the Broad Ripple Art Fair, Penrod, and the Indiana State Fair, where I had winning entries.
