Hello and welcome.  I am Ann Gees, a mindful artist who aspires to inspire others to Live Life Now.


Here you will find my visual artworks: watercolor, acrylic, and mixed-media abstract paintings, along with my written creative works.  Color is my expression of joy and wonderment in life, with vibrant blues, purples, and pinks combined with light and/or dark neutrals and pastels, my color choices often speak of a duality of inner being.  My style is ever-changing as I experiment with different concepts and ideas.  My “Musings” are collections of short essays that seek to inspire.  Life is meant to be lived to the fullest of human potential.  I strive to be ever present and mindful of this beautiful world.
