   Northern California’s variety of beautiful landscapes influenced the early paintings of Ann Erpino. While earning an Art degree at U.C. Berkeley Ann began to deliberately think in visual terms - toward metaphor - in order to use painting as a tool of communication. She studied languages, math, and physics, and has continued to study cosmology and quantum theory independently, often visualizing their hidden qualities.

   Ann has painted over 100 commissioned works for scientists, translating their research and theories into imagery. Her travels to otherworldly landscapes, seascapes, ruins, and natural wonders inform her compositions, as do dreaming, reading, energy awareness, and meditation.

Before dedicating herself to painting full time, Ann worked as a muralist, portraitist, art teacher, and scenographic artist. Her art has been featured in galleries, films, publications, theater, tv, the Chico Museum, and at Caltech's Winfree Laboratory (ongoing). Her prints and award winning paintings belong to collectors worldwide.
