Following Art College, Ann Pengelly worked as an Illustrator in London for several years which she enjoyed, but then she became more interested in working with stained glass as it enabled her to use her technical drawing skills, design experience and her love of light and colour in a more creative way.
When Ann moved to East Devon, she began teaching Stained Glass Adult Education classes throughout Devon and Somerset, which she continued to do for the past 20 years. In 1998, Ann also gained a Certificate of Education from the University of Plymouth. In 2002, she opened her own Stained Glass Studio in Seaton - the upper part of a converted church with its original stained glass windows – the perfect setting for her work. Alongside her teaching, Ann undertakes commissions and restoration work all over the West Country and beyond. She is now one of the very few in the area who specialises in leaded windows including glass etching and traditional painted glass panels. Renowned for her teaching skills, Ann gets great satisfaction from introducing beginners to her craft.
