Anna Rose Bain (b. 1985) is a fine art oil painter and commissioned portrait artist based in Denver, CO. Her paintings often depict people in peaceful settings or places that evoke happiness. She especially loves painting women and children and seeks to convey all of her subjects with honesty and sensitivity.
Inspired by her grandfather, who started painting at the age of 70, Anna spent her free time as a child sketching from nature and poring over art books. She studied fine art at Hillsdale College from 2003-2007, and in 2006 she took a figure painting course at the Florence Academy of Art. After graduating from Hillsdale with honors and distinguishing herself as the first student in the school's history to have a solo senior show, she continued her education by studying with several renowned artists including Judith Carducci, Clayton J. Beck, III, Nancy Guzik, and more.
Anna now resides in Westminster with her husband Steve and daughter Cecelia, having recently moved from the Dallas area. She works full-time as a fine art oil painter and commissioned portrait artist. Anna also teaches workshops and is actively involved in the local arts communities. Having had such inspiring teachers and role models in her own life, she firmly believes in sharing her passion and knowledge of classical art with other aspiring artists, as well as showing practical ways to stay up to date in today's changing art market. She is a signature member of the Oil Painters of America and an Out of State Artist member of the California Art Club. She is also a member of Plein Air Artists of Colorado and the International Guild of Realism and is a distinguished faculty member of the Portrait Society of America. Her award-winning work can be found in numerous private and public collections around the world.
Anna's style employs a direct painting method while drawing from classical roots. She gains inspiration from the joys and struggles in her life, seeking to make the world a better place through her art. Her paintings are an expression of gratitude and an exploration of the questions one faces at different stages of their life. For example, her award-winning self-portrait, "The Wait and the Reward," is a coming to terms with change and a joyous celebration of new life.
