Anna Rose Bain
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.
