Kaye Burian Art
As a long-time outdoor enthusiast and part-owner of Lazy 77 Ranch, North Dakota artist Kaye Burian has all of the inspiration she needs right outside of her studio window. She has an appreciation of her natural surroundings as well as the wildlife, cattle, and horses who inhabit them. She feels that one can only paint what on appreciates and knows.
Kaye is grateful to everyone who invites her to their western activities or to tour the surrounding country beside studying her own. “It further enhances my knowledge and appreciation of the cowboy way of life,” said Kaye. Many times she has drawn from her rodeo and ranching background to give her paintings an authentic and realistic look.
Kaye is an accomplished artist with a bachelor of science degree in art and elementary education from Dickinson State University. She taught art in local schools for six years before turning to painting full-time.
Kaye is a long time member of the American Quarter Horse Association and has always ridden an American Quarter Horse whether showing or participating in rodeo. Kaye was honored with the 2013 Americau2019s Horse in Art, Steel Dust Award. Her work has been featured in Americau2019s Horse, Southwest Art and Western Art Collector.
Kaye works primarily in oils on canvas. Her subject matter relates to her surroundings emphasizing the animals and scenes within them.
