Ann R. Currie was born in Lexington, Kentucky and spent her formative years in Fairfax County, Virginia. She earned her BA in Mathematics at Mary Washington College, Fredericksburg, VA, in 1969, followed by her MFA at James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA, in 1999, specializing in Papermaking and Sculpture.
Her experience as an educator on the collegiate level includes teaching in the art departments of James Madison University and Eastern Mennonite University. Most recently she is teaching at Lord Fairfax Community College where she is an Associate Professor of Art and Art History.
In addition to her work as an educator, Ann Currie continues to create and show her own art. She considers her work to be an expression of her interest in exploring a variety of mediums and solving problems inherent in a process that often builds upon the unexpected. Her current work is the result of exploring the sights around her with pencil and brush on watercolor or gesso monoprint surfaces.
Ms. Currie resides in Toms Brook, VA.
