Meet Us : Ann

Ann : Buyer/Product Developer- Paper

How would you describe yourself?
I would describe myself as funny, thoughtful, smart and loud.

What is your favorite item you've developed for the Museum Shop?
The framed Seligmann Exotic Garden reproduction has been very popular.  In fact, it has been very challenging to develop another product to match it's success!

Do you have a hidden talent?
When I was younger I was a hip hop dancer; in fact, it was so long ago we called it break dancing!

What is your favorite piece at the Art Institute of Chicago?
I love anything by Renoir.  My father discovered his paintings when I was younger and he filled our house with his reproductions; they remind me of being a little girl.

If you weren't a buyer, what would you be?
A hip hop dancer...just kidding!! I would enjoy being either a fashion stylist or an elementary school teacher.

What are your top 10 favorite items from the current assortment?
Of course, I love every product that I have ever developed, but I will include some that my co-workers have been responsible for as well.
