Ann Shier

Toronto/Kawartha Lakes, ON
Ann Shier is an accomplished artist specializing in encaustic painting (stirring pigments into molten wax and applying it to birch panels). Ann’s studies in fine art, combined with her work as a potter and formal training as a graphic artist, influence her encaustic work.

Ann divides her time between her Toronto studio/gallery in the Historical Distillery District and her cottage studio in Kawartha Lakes. Her current work is inspired by the spectacular, everyday surroundings of her cottage life.
