Ann Trainor Domingue describes her art as ‘messy, uncommon, friendly, contemporary art’.
Ann’s artworks frequently begin as a small thumbnail drawing in a sketchbook, drawn to explore an idea quickly before the fleeting idea disappears. Lobster fishermen and their foul weather gear inspired a longstanding series of paintings playing with boat shapes and details found at working waterfronts. “A few years ago I gave my fisherman a girl”, Ann says. “Adding this woman created new relationships that allowed more people to connect with my work. I keep my eyes open for small but significant things that may become part of my upcoming work. It’s a big surprise I always look forward to.”
Ann Trainor Domingue spent her young life in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, moving to New Hampshire in 1986. She lives in Goffstown with her husband Michael, in a 1910 home, with a little barn studio.
