Ann Larsen is an award winning Contemporary Impressionist plein air and studio painter working in oil. She has lived in Oklahoma, New England and Colorado, but currently resides in upstate New York. Ann holds a degree in painting and has studied with well know landscape painters Skip Whitcomb, Frank Serrano and Randall Sexton. Ann is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of American, American Impressionist Society and a Master Signature Member of American Women Artists.

Larsen thinks landscape painting is about making a solid, simplified statement by distilling down the chaos of the subject. She says that working from nature is both exciting and challenging, but ultimately there is a dichotomy between painting and creating a work of art. Having done hundreds of sketches and oil studies in the field, she says the final statements are made in the studio.
