Her work has been featured in more than 40 books and publications, including 6 of the popular Splash books by North Light Books. Pember also has five self-published books available through her website www.annpember.com.

Pember stated, “The abstract patterns and shadows created by light have fascinated me since childhood and are a critical element in the design of my paintings. My paintings are my interpretation of what I see, often exploring an intimate point of view. I often paint in a series as a means of fully exploring a subject. While my paintings are realistic in nature, my intention is to convey my feelings about the subject and a sense of its spirit, rather than to copy a photographically perfect image.”
The Opening Reception for the Adirondack Art Association‘s July Art Exhibit will be held Friday, July 1 from 5:00-7:00 pm in Essex, New York. Gallery openings are always free to the public and light refreshments will be served. The exhibit can also be viewed during weekly gallery hours.
