Ann E. Largay

A native of Maine, Ann was raised in Newport, Maine by her parents, Glendon and Geraldine Varney. She now resides in South Portland, Maine, with her husband, Robert.

Ever since her childhood, Ann has had a keen interest in nature. This was evidenced by her early sketches of wildlife, landscapes, and flowers. As she matured as a self-taught artist, her works included fine-detail and color in knitting, crocheting, tatting, and sewing. Seeking further extensions of her interests, Ann studied pencil drawing with Carolyn Folsom from Bangor, Maine, and watercolor with Maddie Lou Chapman from South Portland, Maine. 

Ann currently uses a large range of an array of mediums; from watercolors to hand painted glass ornaments, slates, mailboxes, furniture, and birdhouses to 3D stained glass Each object is hand painted and signed. Each birdhouse, mailbox, and slate have six coats of protective sealer to make it weatherproof and safe to use outdoors. The glass ornaments come gift boxed with a short description of the subject.

Recently, Ann's passion has turned to stained glass. The term stained glass can refer to the material of colored glass or the craft of working with it. Throughout its thousand-year history, the term "stained glass" has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches, cathedrals, chapels, and other significant buildings. Although traditionally made in flat panels and used as windows, the creations of modern stained glass artists also include three-dimensional structures and sculpture.  Ann has taken three-dimensions to a whole new level... by heating the glass ,she molds it into whatever her imagination can create.  She incorporates vases, sea shells, rocks, and just about anything else you can imagine into her pieces to bring a true masterpiece to life. 

Ann welcomes special orders from companies for their ornaments as they make unique presents for employees or clients.
