Ann Hayes finds inspiration in the rich tapestry of natural and man-made artifacts that make up the Jersey Shore. She is especially drawn to the boardwalks, amusement piers, and old shore houses with their layers of patina. Stressing technique in her work, her watercolors have vibrant colors and a natural realism. Ann began her studies as a teenager at the Bay Head studio of renowned painter Earl Tyler. She has also studied portraiture with Daniel Greene and Nelson Shanks. Ann holds a B.A. in Fine Art from Douglas College, Rutgers University. Her work has been featured in numerous books and magazines.
