About Me

Hi World!

I'm Ann Lauwers

Welcome to An Artist's view Photography

This is a typical day in my studio.... me working while Emma and Megan sleep in the sun.

Where is Cottontail Moors you ask?

It's my home, my gardens, my imagination right here in the very small town, Metamora, Michigan USA


Through my journey of life, I savored the times of being a fine art photographer, gardener, adventurer and dog lover.  As you will see, what holds my attention are landscapes, flowers, natural abstracts and animals. Whether it be a curious creature, a sunset or sunrise, a new blossom of a flower or the last glow in the life of a plant, I strive to capture the simple beauty of nature. My photography has won awards at art shows and has even graced the walls of the governor's residence in Lansing, Michigan. But my most treasured awards are those of personally seeing the joy and excitement of a customer falling in love with an image and honoring me by displaying it in their home.


Photography with a splash of Photoshop or any other artistic means to get the image I am after.  I may do the entire image in photoshop or take a photography of a flower, print it on canvas, then paint over it with acrylics making the image pop with each brush stroke. I call this technique my "Le Cote" process.

Lately I have taken a huge liking to taking photographs, bringing them into photoshop as a guide to the final image of a hand painted painting. 

Limiting my palette of tools to just one technique sometimes is just not enough.
