I start with an attraction and curiosity to a material, usually things that have been used up for their original purpose and discarded. Experimentation and play are at the core of my practice. I challenge myself: Can I pull a second life out of something that has been thrown away?
Building up layers of materials into a matrix intrigues and engages. The process is time consuming and evolves slowly through trial and error. The surprises delight and metaphorically remind me to remain open and responsive to the unexpected. The possibilities seem endless.
I hope my work inspires others to see infinite potential in their surroundings and to be invigorated by the transformative power of the imagination.
Ann McIntyre lives and works in Dallas, Texas, where she graduated from Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of the Arts with a BFA in Studio Art/Ceramics.
She attributes her passion for art and aesthetics to her move to Tokyo, Japan at age 17. After graduating from high school in Tokyo, she apprenticed under master porcelain ceramicist Koichi Takita in Aizu Wakamatsu, Fukushima-ken Japan. Upon returning to the US, she studied ikebana and became an instructor in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana of Tokyo, which she continues to practice.
After 20+ years as a Strategic Account Executive in the information technology space, her inner muse insisted she return to creative life. For the last 7 years, she has focused on her art exclusively, including studying in the Dallas County Community College District at Brookhaven College of the Arts and Cedar Valley College, where she studied under Linda Ridgway for five (5) years.
In 2019, Ann exhibited her art in three one woman shows at Cedar Valley College, Gensler and at the Statler Residences Penthouse.
