Surrounded by piñon and junipers at the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Ann-Marie lives with her son, The Beekeeper, in the high desert country outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her life as a Buddhist Chaplain, psychotherapists, and mindfulness coach inform her artwork. Currently Ann-Marie’s creative focus radiates from the lens of a deep relationship with the dharma while being supported by a community of loving friends. She enjoys working with her students and clients, writing, painting, xeriscape gardening, hiking and biking the arroyos, and speaking with the ravens and great horned owls.

Ann-Marie lives and breathes George Eliot’s quote, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
