Ann Kraft Walker

Kraft Walker

Ann Kraft Walker was Texas born in 1955. In 1977 she received a BFA in Art History at The University of Texas at Austin . Walker later moved to Germany for several years which provided the opportunity for extensive travel and many museum visits where her love for art deepened. At The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, she distinctly remembers the desire to learn to paint washing over her. However, busy raising three children, she did not take up a paintbrush until her mid-forties. Then began the privilege of the never ending pursuit of learning to paint. Walker shares from her heart : " Any shred of talent I possess is a gift from God and a reflection of His grace". Walker is a member of The Portrait Society of America, Oil Painters of America, The International Guild of Realism and American Women Artists.
