Ann is an avid pen and ink and watercolour artist.
Ann started her drawing career in the Drawing office for British Rail in the late 1950s, drawing plans.
But in 1976 Ann moved to Cornwall and opened a restaurant at The Count House at Botallack. Her cooking and artwork grew with confidence. So much so she earned a Michelin Red M, an Egon Ronay Star and became one of the top 3 female Master chefs in Great Britain.
Ann went on to publish a book, Ann long’s Dinner Party Book which was published in 1986. All the illustrations within the book were done by herself.
Now retired she has time to concentrate on her painting and LOVES doing so.
