Anya Rosen grew up in Los Angeles, CA and graduated with a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. In 2013, while working as an artist assistant in remote New Mexico, Anya began developing a career in agriculture. Living without modern conveniences encouraged her to investigate where food, fuel and fabricated products come from, and where they go once they have been expended. She has since worked on several farms across the U.S. and is currently an assistant manager of vegetable production at Willowsford Farm in VA. Anya has completed artist residency programs in remote areas of Iceland and Colombia, and has exhibited work in the 2017 Cementa Festival in Kandos, NSW, Australia. Her work has been featured in several publications including Ain't Bad, Matador Review, and Friend of the Artist. She is currently the Artist-in-Residence at Breckenridge Creative Arts in Breckenridge, CO. Anya lives and works in Loudoun County, VA where she documents rural communities and contemporary agriculture through painting, photography, and sculpture.
