Anne Faber was born in Junction City, Kansas and raised in Litchfield County Connecticut. She attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York where she earned highest honors in Studio Arts from her graduating class. She then then completed her MFA at Syracuse University and was honored with a full scholarship and the George Vandersluis Award for Outstanding Graduate Student in painting.
Annie has had the good fortune to live on both coasts and the Southeast while she worked as a Visual Arts instructor at The Thacher School and The Lovett School. She moved with her family to Madison, Wisconsin in 2002 and shortly thereafter made Chicago, Illinois her home.
As an active studio Artist since the mid 1980’s, Annie Faber has honed a personal painting style that is created with multiple layers of saturated chroma laid down in thin glazes which seem to shift and breathe as the viewer contemplates the pieces. Annie is honored to be included in both public and private collections. Her paintings have been acquired for permanent collections in both Skidmore College and Syracuse University. She has additionally been honored with fellowships at The Nexus Contemporary Art Center and Artist Residency Retreats and has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in galleries & exhibitions in the Southeast, New England and the Midwest.
