Largely self-taught, Texas painter Ann Kraft Walker started out in a folk art style, but eventually evolved into a refined realist approach for her still life and portrait subjects.
Since 2010, she has supplemented her study with several workshops, and has been featured in a number of juried exhibitions and art magazines.
Walker’s still life paintings are intimate and understated, with an inviting contemplative quality. Her portraits are somewhat more bold, often with areas of the canvas left unfinished, suggesting an immediacy of execution.
