Women walking in the landscape by Anne Hayden Stevens

Anne Hayden Stevens is a painter and printmaker living outside Chicago, IL. She has an MA in Visual Studies from the University of California at Berkeley, and a BFA in Printmaking and Drawing from California College of the Arts.

Anne’s work ranges across painting, drawing, printmaking and public art. Her work has been exhibited in Chicago at the Evanston Art Center, Governor’s State University Art Gallery, The Koehnline Museum of Art, and at the Harold Washington Library Center during Chicago Artists Month.  Public art pieces are located on Rainier Avenue South in Seattle, the Seattle Municipal Tower, and the University of Washington.

I am a narrative landscape painter and my conceptual focus is women walking in the landscape. I am currently working on two parallel bodies of work: a set of oil paintings, and a set of digital print series titled Women & Mountains which reflects on women’s experience in our current political landscape.

My oil paintings are oil and alkyd medium on gessoed panel. I protect my paintings with a cold wax varnish. My archival prints are large scale digital collages that remix fragments of my completed paintings with 3D models, photographs and drawing. I build the digital images as vector-based artwork so the collages can be scaled and applied to walls and building surfaces.
