Ann is an art, architecture and design writer based in London. Her education is in Art History and Design Criticism and her professional experience includes research and communications roles with 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 collaborative, positioning language as an inseparable extension to the design process. She works with architects, artists and designers to develop written context and coherency around visual and built work. This translates practically into manifesto writing, project narrative content, bid and award writing, strategy and thought leadership content.
Ann also writes for publications on art, architecture, design and culture including the New London Quarterly and the Times of Malta amongst others. 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.
