Ann Aspinwall is a founder, with Knut Willich, of Aspinwall Editions. She received her MA in art history from the University of St Andrews in Scotland in 1998 and studied printmaking at studios in Scotland and Italy. Her work of the past few years employs the fundamental elements of line and a few select colors to suggest luminous expanses of water, landscape, and sky. The lines, all hand-drawn from her imagination, convey the topographical features of the invented terrain, while the colors evoke certain light and atmospheric conditions. The optical effects of highlights, shadows, and depth are achieved through variations of line density and the meticulous choice of colors.

Aspinwall’s prints are in the permanent collections of the British Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the New York Public Library, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Smith College Museum of Art.
