The Artist’s Greenhouse was born.  A 24’x48’ commercial greenhouse was constructed on the farm to propagate and grow Japanese Maples, succulents, annuals and perennials.  Much of this plant material wound up either in Ann’s garden art or at plant sales or her giant garden.  The greenhouse was also the location for two-day weekend workshops.

Partnered with husband, Lynn, to form Enthuse Design, being the first in the nation to use a lazer machine in a decorative way on a unique product: a hose holder.  This was sold through major gift catalogues, shops and nurseries and meant bi-annual sales trips to Atlanta, NY, Chicago, LA and Seattle gift shows.   Designed home and garden products and created an annual 20-page catalogue. Enthuse Design took the Munsons to China for collaboration on a line of animal-shaped baskets made from natural materials by women in small northern villages. Six trips resulted in over 75 unique designs that were highly successful and widely received; however, production problems eventually closed Enthuse in 2005.


Moved with husband and sons to a 14-acre farm in West Linn.  The rolling countryside, animals and large garden have become her inspiration through many art mediums.
