Ann Sullivan was born and reared in New York City where she taught Biology at
Andrew Jackson High School after graduating from Marquette University in
In the late 70’s she and her husband moved to Cape Cod where they raised their
4 children. She opened the Ann Sullivan Gallery in 1983 and has sold her work
through other galleries as well from New York to North Carolina to Florida.
Today she and her husband reside in Naples, FL most of the year where she
teaches oil painting for the City of Naples. They return to the beloved Cape Cod
home and the gallery for the summer months.
Except for a few classes at Pratt Institute, while she was still in high school, Ann is
a self taught artist who has drawn and painted since childhood. (A list of her
favorite painting masters follows below.)
In addition to one-man shows, her work has been included in Museum Exhibitions
and has won numerous awards in National and juried shows.
She has taught painting at the various Art Associations across the Cape as well
as in Naples and her work has been widely published in regional and national
publications, including American Artist magazine.
Her eye catching paintings are filled with beautiful light and color reflected on
water, boats, seashore, rainy and snowy city streets, still life, and on figures
enjoying the timeless moments we universally share.
