Ann Kullberg is a national award-winning portrait artist who has enjoyed observing and drawing the human figure all her life. Her life-like paintings capture the true essence of likeness and expression with unerring instinct and warmth. Tokyo-born Ann Kullberg brings a sensitivity to colored pencil artistry that goes back to her childhood.  Raised in Japan by Lutheran missionary parents, she experimented with watercolors and pastels at a young age, but didn’t devote herself to art until 1987. She resides in Washington. A self-taught artist and former school teacher, Ann began receiving recognition for her portraiture in galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest.  Her work has been selected for national greeting cards, and has won numerous exhibition awards.  Ann has served as juror for art competitions and she conducts colored pencil workshops internationally.

Ann's portraiture successfully combines the seemingly contradictory qualities of traditionalism and innovation. A pioneer in the use of colored pencils, Ann has been riding the crest of this medium's rapidly rising popularity. A recipient of numerous awards, she is in high demand both for her winsome children's portraits and her nationally held workshops, proving colored pencil to be a serious and credible art medium. Ann has recently completed her own book, "Colored Pencil Portraits Step by Step", published by North Light Books in March, 1999. Capturing Soft Realism, published by North Light Books in August, 2002.

Ann's work has also been featured in the following books:

  • Keys to Painting Faces & Figures
  • Creating Textures in Colored Pencil
  • Creative Colored Pencil Techniques
  • Best of Colored Pencil, Volumes II, III and IV
