BIO

Anya McManis - ArtistAnya McManis’ art is defined by intricate line work, fluid shapes and vibrant colors. Her paintings convey a mastery of color along with an innate sense of rhythm and composition. Viewing her dynamic work has been described as an exciting, moving experience.

Over the past decade, through experimentation with a variety of media and subject matter, her work has evolved significantly. Earlier paintings incorporated handmade paper, layering of texture and gold leaf — techniques she has not completely abandoned.

Her art bursts forth with visceral emotion and she considers herself an abstract expressionist. Always curious, she continues to grow and explore, and invites you along on her journey.

Anya’s work has been shown in galleries and exhibitions throughout Colorado, was featured in several solo shows at Colorado Women’s College at the University of Denver, and exhibited internationally at
the Florence Biennale in Italy, and the Niagara Falls History Museum
in Niagara Falls, Canada.

A German native, Anya has lived in Colorado for over 20 years. She graduated with honors from Colorado Women’s College at the University of Denver.  Aside from painting, she also runs her creative agency, AMCS Marketing in Aurora, Colorado.
