About the Artist
Ann DeHoog is a self-taught jewelry artist living in West Michigan. The love of beauty, Michigan, history, and rock-hounding; first with her father, and now with her son, came together in the art of metalsmithing and stone polishing. The stones themselves, the properties of metals, textures, and color, are the inspirations for her designs.
Ann is currently studying metal smithing with Master Jeweler, Peter Keep. She studied music and art at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and played her flute professionally.
She is married to her best friend, Dean, and has two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren.
