Napa Valley artist and photographer Ann Nunziata is recently returned from an 8 week trip through the Intracoastal Waterway to the Bahamas and back on a 45 foot sailboat. For the past several summers, Ann and her husband have sailed their custom sailboat from its launch in Toronto out the St. Lawrence Seaway and throughout the Canadian Maritimes, including Newfoundland. They continued through Maine as far south as Georgetown, SC, then across the Atlantic to several of the Bahamian Island chains before returning to Florida.
A participant in Napa Valley Open Studios, Ann is inspired by the natural world around her. As a self-taught artist who took up art naturally after a career at Apple Computer, she has always been interested in creating. "I love color and I love to make things" she says, "so I feel compelled to capture the beauty of my surroundings wherever I am."
Ann enjoys keeping travel journals and capturing a wide variety of subjects in watercolor, pastel and photography. She is a member of the Napa Valley Art Association, California Watercolor Association, Napa Valley Photographic Association and the Napa-Solano Audubon Chapter. Ann lives with her husband on their farm in Napa, California.
