Anna Rose Bain

American Art Collector - - Award Winner -

The John C. Doyle Art Gallery proudly rep­re­sents the work of Anna Rose Bain. She is very kin­dred to late artist John C. Doyle in that she is able to paint any sub­ject that in­spires her with mas­ter­ful re­sults. How­ever, she is es­pe­cially known for her serene fig­u­ra­tive works of women in beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ments.

Bain was a self-taught artist un­til at­tend­ing Hills­dale Col­lege where she fell in love with oils and ex­celled while sweep­ing ju­ried art awards ev­ery se­mes­ter. She re­ceived a full schol­ar­ship her se­nior year to at­tend a sum­mer of paint­ing at the Florence Acad­emy of

Art. She has also stud­ied un­der sev­eral renowned artists in­clud­ing Ju­dith Car­ducci and Nancy Guzik.

Her paint­ing style com­bines clas­si­cal and di­rect paint­ing meth­ods. Her paint­ings are an ex­pres­sion of grat­i­tude, and an ex­plo­ration of the ques­tions one faces at dif­fer­ent stages of their life. Most re­cently her self-por­trait, Silent Snow­fall, was cho­sen in the top 25 fi­nal­ists for the 2018 Por­trait So­ci­ety of Amer­ica In­ter­na­tional Por­trait Com­pe­ti­tion, as well as be­ing given the Award for Ex­cep­tional Merit.

Por­traits of her two chil­dren are also prom­i­nent in her life as an artist. Be­fore the re­cent ar­rival of her sec­ond baby, she pub­lished a book of her paint­ings and draw­ings about moth­er­hood in hopes that it will in­spire other cre­ative par­ents and care­givers to con­tinue pur­su­ing their dreams. Bain now re­sides in West­min­ster, Colorado, with her hus­band, Steve, their daugh­ter, Ce­celia, and their brand-new ad­di­tion, Everett.
