Ann Ladd; Artist of the Week

I am a painter and come from a family where art runs deep in our veins.  Recently, I have been inspired by my father and son (the latter of whom is also participating in the show; Jude Ferencz) to create three-dimensional sculptures out of found materials cluttering my studio.  The subject matter I am particularly drawn to conveying is the wealth of life in the wetlands along the Hudson River.  I was given the opportunity to work on a mural with The William Jackson Elementary School in MT Vernon where we focused on the food chains.  Using “recycled” left over paint we represented the abundant river species that are a part of one of the most amazing eco systems in the world.
