ART/DESIGN WRITER

Ann is an art and design writer based in London. Her education background is in Art History and Design Criticism and her career experience has included roles in communications for award-winning architecture studios including dRMM Architects, Adjaye Associates and Architecture Project. Ann has worked as a freelance writer and content consultant for four years, writing remotely from London, New York and Malta since 2016.

Ann's process is rooted in collaboration, fuelled by a belief that text and visual content should function as an extension of the creative process and not as a post-production exercise. She works with architects, artists and designers to unearth context and thematic coherency around visual and built work. This translates practically into manifesto writing, project development content, bid and competition writing, strategy writing and thought leadership content. 

Ann also regularly contributes to online and print publications on art, architecture, design and culture including the New London Quarterly and the Times of Malta amongst other titles. She has edited two books on design and art (Please, don't be a dick, 2014; V001, 2019), and is copyeditor for the Artpaper and Market Cafe Mag. She is content writer for Valletta Contemporary, a contemporary art gallery based in Valletta, Malta.

In 2019, Ann opened a photography and text-based exhibition titled The Spaces that Connect Us, examining the social constructs of an internetless society in rural America. In summer 2020, she curated Other Places, a watercolour exhibition featuring thirteen works by Malta-based artist Sebastian Tanti Burlò.
