Ann Marie is a nature photographer, naturalist, lecturer, and lepidopterist.  She resides in the pinelands village of Warren Grove and has been photographing the native flora and fauna of the New Jersey Pinelands for over 22 years. She was born on Long Beach Island, attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY and Stockton University in Galloway New Jersey for fine arts. Below is an excerpt from a brief biography:

  

"Ann-Marie has participated in both solo and group photography exhibits at colleges, cultural centers, and local museums, and has contributed her photographs to non-profit publications and events. She has been interviewed by area newspapers and magazines regarding her photography and as an event coordinator. She has given numerous presentations on nature photography and shares anecdotes as a lifelong New Jersey resident to convey the united advantages of artistic inspiration combined with research, study, and conservation of this state's natural heritage.

Lepidoptera- particularly Moths, is now the primary focus of Ann-Marie's photography and

 collaborative efforts. "
