Through her work, Anne Burton explores identity and ways to assert and define our individuality within our society and culture. Recent works explore our desire to be seen and heard, and artifice as it relates to our image of ourselves and to what we regard as feminine and male/female roles. Her images begin as still lives, created using nostalgic objects, paper ephemera and her own drawings and sculptures. Anne works in a variety of media including printmaking, drawing, painting, installation art and animation.
Originally from Virginia Beach, VA, Anne now lives in Lincoln, NE with her husband and two young sons. She has been a full time faculty member in the Art department at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska since 2011. She teaches Printmaking, 2D Design and Drawing. She holds a BA in studio art from the University of Richmond and an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Anne has held residencies at Vermont Studio Center, the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts and the Cable Factory in Helsinki, Finland.
