ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Ann Phelps has been working as a musician, chaplain, teacher, activist, and arts minister since 2009 when she graduated from Yale Divinity School and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. With her academic background in theology and the arts, her work explores the ways that we can recover lost voices from tradition to help us root and expand our own worship practices and theologies as well as generate creative spiritual expressions authentic to our contemporary cultures. She lives in Jackson, MS with her husband and two children, and is expanding from her usual liturgical and musical ministry to re-engage visual arts and storytelling, which was the focus of her undergraduate education at Hastings College in Nebraska.
She begins this endeavor with her attempt to write and illustrate a children’s book, The Chapel and the Well, as The Hive’s first Artist in Residence.
