Artist from Barbados ( 1958 - )
Ann Dodson was born in Barbados in 1958. She studied at McGill University, and earned a BFA from Concordia University, Canada. Best known for her Barbados landscapes, Dodson also illustrated the children's books Mauby’s Big Adventure, Mauby’s Quest for the Magic Flower and Mauby and the Hurricane.
Dodson is widely collected, and her paintings have been exhibited in Boston, Washington, DC, and Paris. Of her work, she says, 'The juxtaposition of colour, pattern and shape tend to dominate my creative thought process, whether these are explored in the Barbadian landscape or celebrated in the female figure.'
