For Ann Drosendahl, abstract art is about freedom of the imagination. She likes to work on large canvases—often six feet tall—in order to express herself fully. Drosendahl’s oil paintings are adorned with bright flourishes of reds, yellows, and oranges, which she embellishes with the use of oil sticks and rubber-tipped brushes to both add new layers and reveal underlying colors. Discussing her process, Drosendahl says, “It is about color, flow, and texture held together with an instinct of balance.”

Drosendahl, who was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona, where she attended college. Inspired as a child by an Andrew Wyeth painting displayed in the Cincinnati Art Museum, Drosendahl began painting representationally, but eventually moved on to abstract painting, a style that allowed her to express “big feelings” with her equally big artwork. Viewing her compositions, one can’t help but feel the intensity of emotion. “Color and mood have affected my artwork intimately,” Drosendahl says. “Textures, gestures, emotions—they all play into what I love as an abstract artist.”
