No one ever said art was easy, in fact, if you ask any artist they will tell you that it is one of the hardest professional pursuits in the world. The difficulty of the profession, however, is not a barrier to those who honestly and truly feel the call of the muses in their heart and soul. While it has been said that the world needs more artists, a more actuate statement could be that the world needs more passionate artists who give their all into everything that they create. To put is more simply the world needs more artists like Ann Scango.
Ann started out life as a precarious little girl who loved to romp in the garden and get dirty before heading inside to play with her mother’s art supplies. In many ways, the adult version of Ann is not much different than her 7-year-old self. She still likes to get dirty and play with art supplies, but today she actually gets to create amazing pieces that cause people to think, feel, and react, and best of all she gets paid for it. Ann has done well, finding a home in the bustling and multifaceted arts community in the “Blue Oasis” of creativity and renaissance thinking that can be found in the most unlikely of places, central Texas, that is Austin. Austin has long been known as America’s weirdest city, but the busy and vibrant arts community doesn’t take exception to the moniker, they embrace it as a badge of honor, and chief among them is Ann Scango.

Ann is the founder and sole proprietor of the Scango Collection, a gallery in Austin that not only showcases her own work but gives an outlet to the work of others who are in the same expressive vein as she is. She takes great pride and satisfaction in helping others rise to the top of their creative abilities. She was fortunate enough to have the love and support of a caring mother who encouraged her artists pursuits and allowed her to fall many times before she started to soar. She understands that there are many out there who do not have that resource, and she is attempting to help make the world a better place by providing it.
Ann Scango loves Austin, she loves art, and she loves artists. She is a proud member of an often misunderstood community, and that is perfectly OK with her. As long as she keeps making the incredible art pieces that move us in ways that we never thought possible, it’s perfectly ok with us as well.
