Ann has the unique distinction of being the youngest and only girl in the Shelton family. Growing up with three older brothers wasn’t always easy, and oh the stories she could tell…
Ann joined the company in 2011. She works on labels, formulas, and promotional artwork for The Festival. Often thought to be the quietest and most mild-mannered in the family, Ann learned early on that standing up for what is right sometimes requires stomping your feet and throwing rocks to be sure your point is made. This useful skill comes in handy when negotiating with the TTB over label approval.
Ann studied Fine Art at Pratt Institute, and went to earn her MFA in Painting from the University of Hartford. When not working on labels, Ann teaches Painting, Drawing and Design at Keene State College in New Hampshire.
