Anna Kaye’s meticulous drawings explore the relationship between coniferous forests and their wildfires. Working as an artist in Colorado, she is influenced by the region’s annual fire season. Her drawings emphasize fire as a natural impetus for change and regeneration. She earned her Bachelor of Science in geology and fine art at Skidmore College, NY. She continued her education at Yale’s Norfolk program in printmaking, painting, drawing, and photography. She received her Masters of Fine Arts degree at Washington University in St. Louis where she was awarded the Laura and William Jens Scholarship and a teaching on record position. Anna Kaye’s artwork is a part of international, private, corporate, and museum collections including Home & Garden Television’s Green Home 2011. Interviews and reviews include National Public Radio’s Colorado Matters, Colorado Life Magazine, and the Denver Post. Kaye donates a percentage of all sales annually to Colorado State Forest Service’s Bark Beetle Mitigation Fund. She was a former Visiting Assistant Professor and Co-Coordinator of Drawing at Metropolitan State University, Denver. She currently teaches at the Denver Art Museum and is represented by the Sandra Phillips Gallery in Denver.
