Ann Froman ( 1942 - )

The sculpture and drawings of Ann Froman are inspired by her desire to convey her perceptions and feelings of human relationships. She began her career as a fashion designer and has become a recognized sculptor as well as a private individual devoted to social issues relating to women and children. Her own relationships play a large role in her artwork, and she believes that everyone shares the same human needs for love, warmth, and meaningful interaction with others.

Froman was born in New York where she studied at the National Academy of Fine Arts, the Fashion Institute of Technology. and the Fountainebleu School of Fine Art in France. In Fountainebleu, she studied architecture with the Le Corbusier and painting with Henri Goetz.

She took her first course in sculpture at the New School for Social Research, and after six months, she began exhibiting locally and selling her work. By the early 21st century her work is widely distributed in collections including Radcliffe College, Brooklyn College, the National Museum of Dance, Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Time-Warner, and the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.

Froman frequently uses her work for community benefits, and has helped build a kitchen at a Miami synagogue, raised money for sisterhoods and her acrylic, "New Generation," (the one that shows the baby in the womb) was selected by the March of Dimes as a national fund raiser.
