Ann Aspinwall (born in 1976 in New York) received her MA in art history from the University of St Andrews in Scotland in 1998, and studied printmaking at studios in Scotland and Italy. She previously worked as a master printer at Pace Editions in New York and as a print specialist at the New York Public Library. In 2012 Aspinwall and Knut Willich founded Aspinwall Editions, a fine art print publisher and print studio with facilities in New York and Rheine, Germany.

Aspinwall's work of the past several years employs the fundamental elements of line and a few select colors to suggest luminous expanses of water, landscape, and sky. The hand-drawn lines convey the topographical features of the (imagined) terrain, while the colors evoke certain light and atmospheric conditions. They impart just enough information for the viewer to have her own experience of a sublime setting.
