Kirsten Savage
Kirsten Savage is one of Northern Colorado’s top representational artists best known for her conceptual figurative oil paintings and landscapes of the Southwest. After graduating from Maryland Institute College of Art, Kirsten moved from Baltimore to Colorado where she found her love for the outdoors while leading trail crews on Rocky Mountain’s 14,000′ peaks. She now backpacks all over the high alpine country and Southwest desert to seek inspiration for her artwork. Kirsten’s oil paintings are about contemplation and connection.  In her figurative works, she purposefully leaves some ambiguity in each piece so that the imagery is open to interpretation, inspiring critical thinking and personal reflection. In her landscapes, Kirsten seeks out those places that embody the expanse of the wild west, appreciating the opportunity to immerse herself in the spaces where the silence is deafening and the big open skies humble us.  Kirsten exhibits in art shows and fine art festivals across the United States and her artwork is in private and corporate collections around the world.
