ABOUT Ivy Walker
Ivy Walker creates temporary artworks in the land and documents these through photographs. She places handmade paper cut-outs, or other art materials, into the land to evoke a temporary, poetic presence.   Her artwork explores 'the ephemeral' and how this quality, paradoxically, connects all life with the ‘Infinite’.   
   
Walker has a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she also taught Drawing and Art Foundations as a part-time lecturer.  She received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Colorado State University.  She is also a Certified Nature-Connected Coach who incorporates creating art with transformational life coaching sessions in the landscape.  Recently, she has shown work at Artcorps in Pueblo and in Denver at Redline Gallery.  Her work is represented by Gallery 3 in Crested Butte.  For more information, go to www.ivywalker.com.
