Celtic Crosses and Related Works
Beginning in 1996, Ann's work took a new turn. She had taken a number of classes at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, CA relating theology and art. Out of this ­ and her changing attitudes resulting from her breast cancer ­ came the desire to 'simplify things', as she put it.
She used the Celtic Cross motif for a number of years, typically in the form of smaller units ranging in size from 15 to 22 inches on a side. But one work that she did in her role as Artist-in-Residence for her church resulted in 'crosses' that reach nearly 25 feet high.
