Biography
Step into an intimate moment and enter the tranquil world of Ann Huston. Enter the room or landscape, spare in details, resonating with spirit. Come away knowing you have been a part of a unique place. Such are the elegant pastel paintings of Ann Huston, where less is more and more.

Her casitas, secluded in the landscape, evoke a place apart from the viewer’s modern world. Her meandering roads draw us in, and lead us to a destination, much anticipated, but out of our immediate vision.

The adobe chapel at the crest of the hill, or the solitary tree embracing the path, the dwelling nestled in the folds of the earth, all whisper to us, sending messages that are timely and timeless.

“Painting is my form of meditation; it is going to a place of calm and quiet strength. My inspiration comes from the New Mexico landscape, the high-altitude light, and the mysteries surrounding the old places. Inspiration comes from emotions and dreams.”

Ann Huston’s paintings are a quiet study of our inner and outer selves. There is always a space that contains a story; there is always a path that leads us on into our lives. The solitude and peace that we all seek is in the magic of Ann’s work.
