about the artist
Ann Moeller Steverson is an oil painter known for her masterful figures, portraits, and still-lifes. Her contemporary work bridges the classical beauty with the contemporary painting practices of today. She has been awarded the honor of the Bold Brush Award, a distinction an artist may achieve only only once in their lifetime. Ann’s work has recently been selected as a finalist in the Art Renewal Center, been featured in several Oil Painters of America exhibits, and has been awarded by the National Acrylic and Oil Painters Society, and Portrait Society of America.
A native of Madison, Alabama, Ann began painting in oils at the University of Montevallo in 1999. She graduated in 2002 from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, completing a B.A. with a Fine Arts Concentration. Ann then acquired a Masters of Art Education from Alabama A&M University in Normal, Alabama.
In 2015, Ann partnered with two other artists to help co-found Protege Atelier, where she paints, teaches, and assists in bringing master artist workshops to Huntsville.
Ann exhibits her work both nationally and locally and is represented by Rivenbark and Roper Gallery.
