Anne Kindl discovered the power of art at a young age, and it continues to guide her creative journey.
Anne received her Bachelor of Fine Art from the College of Design at Iowa State University and spent 25 years as a graphic designer in corporations and not-for-profit organizations.
Anne discovered pastels after a friend invited her to take a class, an opportunity which led to an entirely new artistic path and change in career. She has spent the last decade working in pastels and loving each moment of discovering what the medium offers in creative expression and visual appreciation. Her work focuses primarily on the elements of nature and abstract realism blending the emotional response to pure color with the unique individualism of spontaneous marks.
Anne is a signature member of Pastel Society of America, International Association of Pastel Societies Master Circle recipient and an active member of the Great Lakes Pastel Society.
Anne enjoys teaching and sharing the journey of learning with others who have found the courage and creativity to express themselves through art.
