Ann Baldwin May has lived in Santa Cruz for over 35 years. After creating over 300 bed quilts since the 1970’s, Ann turned her focus to art quilts.
Her art quilts may be abstract, whimsical or impressionistic. Her inspiration comes from the natural world, as well as from Mexican and Native American influences. Her materials of choice are often redirected fabrics from the San Francisco Design Center and found objects.
