Anna Marie Pavlik was born in Minnesota and earned a BA in fine art from the University of Minnesota, Duluth; a certificate in drafting from Saint Paul Vocational School (now Saint Paul College), MN; and a BS in mechanical engineering. She often explores narrative themes in her work, focusing on the intaglio process and stratigraphy, a monoprint technique. Growing concern for the survival of natural areas and a need to understand the relationship of people to their environment has also inspired her to explore nature-related themes.
Pavlik participated in artist-in-residence programs sponsored by provincial, state, and national parks. Her collaborations with parks have resulted in artwork exhibited at the University of Alaska Museum of the North, Fairbanks; PRINT USA; Springfield Art Museum, MO; and publication in the Trail Guide to the Northland Experience in Prints and Poetry, published by Calyx Press.
Her etchings are represented in the collections of the Kentucky State Fair, Louisville; Hallmark Corporation in Kansas City, MO; Solender Hall, Inc., Dallas, TX; Sprint Corporation, Overland Park, KS; Tweed Museum of Art, Duluth, MN; University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and University of South Dakota, Vermilion. She lives and works in Frankfort, Kentucky.
