Chris Ann Ambery is a multi-disciplinary artist and art educator. She was born and raised in Queens, New York and currently resides with her family in Smithtown. She earned her BFA at Parsons School of Design and her MFA at LIU Post with a concentration in printmaking. She is currently teaching painting and printmaking at St. Joseph's College in Patchogue, NY.

Chris Ann is an artist who continually explores different techniques and media, often combining and finding non-traditional ways to employ them. The concept of perpetual motion and momentum is inherent in her work. Through the utilization of opaque and transparent layers of line, shape, color and texture she creates dimension and movement within her pieces. Her work explores the figurative as well as the abstract and she is continually inspired by the organic forms and textures found in nature.

Exploring non-toxic printmaking methods has become a passion of Chris Ann’s. She has been working with Master Printmaker Dan Welden who introduced her to the innovative, and incredibly versatile non-toxic form of etching called Solarplate. Recently she organized artist workshops and curated “The Print Parade” exhibition at Dan Welden Studios in Sag Harbor, NY. Chris Ann teaches painting, watercolor, drawing, and printmaking classes and is
passionate about sharing her knowledge and love for art.
