Since childhood Ann Erpino has been inspired by Northern California’s variety of natural beauty. She has traveled to many otherworldly landscapes, natural wonders, and archaeological sites for inspiration. Earning a Fine Art degree at U.C. Berkeley, Ann also studied languages and natural sciences, and became aware of visual art’s language-like potential to communicate ideas. Before full time easel painting, she worked as a muralist, portraitist, art teacher, workshop presenter, and scenographic artist.
Ann has painted over 100 commissioned works for leading scientists, translating their research and theories into imagery about molecular programming, neurobiology, self assembly, life’s mineral origins, medicine, and much more. Her current project is a film portraying an integrated, holographic cosmos, and various ways in which the four fundamental forces are reflected in life processes.
Ann’s award winning art has been exhibited in museums and galleries, and featured in films, publications, theater, and on tv. She has maintained studio/galleries in Chico, Los Angeles, and Sacramento, CA, and in Portland OR, and has an ongoing exhibition of ninety eight science paintings at Caltech’s Winfree Laboratory. Her paintings and prints belong to collectors worldwide.
