About Kaye Burian:
Kaye was honored with the Steel Dust Award for best of show at the
American Quarter Horse Associations, America’s Horse in Art Show and Sale
in Amarillo, TX in 2013. Her work has been featured in Western Art
Collector Magazine frequently, and most recently in their "Art of the
Horse" feature, May 2014.
Being born and raised on a ranch in western
North Dakota, Kaye Burian, finds her western way of life easy to portray.
Many times she has drawn from her rodeo and ranching background to give her
paintings an authentic and realistic look. Ranching is still a part of her
life as she and her husband, Myran, own and operate Lazy 77 Ranch, near
Manning, North Dakota. Their two sons, Paige and Harden have been active in
the rodeo arena and ranching business.
Kaye graduated with a Bachelor of Science
Degree from Dickinson State University, in Dickinson, ND. After teaching art
and elementary education for six years, Kaye turned to painting full time at
her studio at the ranch.
Their ranch is home to a commercial red and
black angus herd of cattle, they raise and use American Quarter Horses in
their ranching operation. These surroundings help Kaye encounter the
natural world and its inhabitants face-to-face and bring that experience to
her art. Their emotions help her portray her subjects with fidelity and
