About the Artist Ansley Pye
Ansley Pye is a native of San Diego, but spent the first part of her adult life traveling throughout Europe and the Middle East. After attending La Sorbonne, Ansley returned to San Diego. It was there where her life took a distinguishing turn. Ansley was diagnosed with MS at the age of 30. Upon the realization that her life was never to be the same, she began her journey as a professional artist. She started out as a watercolorist and gradually was drawn towards working in oil.
Her subject has always related to the feminine shapes, and to the imperfections that are the true source of beauty and uniqueness in all things.
As Ansley continues her artistic journey she blends both the organic shapes in nature and the beauty of the feminine form with vibrant colors and bold strokes to create an image that captivates its viewer. The lines, splatter, and geometric forms in her work add an abstraction that creates interest. Ansley has always considered her art to be a continuing conversation with herself and the world around her.
In 2008 began a career in curating art for galleries as well as for individual collections, gaining her training and experience through working with other well known curators and taking seminar workshops through the Independent Curators Association. With her increased knowledge and experience through working in galleries and in the private sector, Ansley has widened her scope of view with regards to not only how work is best displayed, but within her own work that has become a cohesive body of work.
