Anne Burkholder has been painting Nebraska landscapes for over 70 years. Even in her early life, she showed a strong interest in anything related to art. Learning her letters quickly turned into doodles and drawings, and at the age of 6, Anne was given her first set of oil paints. But much of her inspiration came from long family road trips across The Great Plains. As a native of the Sandhills, Anne loved to look at the never-ending horizon, admiring its beauty and anticipating the adventure that awaited her. Anne’s art has always been about her experiences in nature – the way the clouds move across the sky in an afternoon, the water moves against the smooth stones or the trees are nestled together in perfect symmetry. Her landscapes are a reflection of her childhood memories, but also the moments that bring her the greatest peace. Standing in open places, feeling the wind, smelling the soil – these are the moments she remembers when she paints. Her work captures moments, for herself, and for other who want to know, remember and cherish the beauty of The Great Plains.
