Curriculum Vitae


Pauline Foss’ paintings and drawings reflect her interest and concern about the natural world and the humans and non-humans that co-exist (ideally).

Foss received a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Vermont College of Fine Art, a Master’s Degree in Art from Adams State University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Art History from the University of California, Davis. She has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including a Colorado Excellence in the Arts Fellowship in 2002. Her work has been exhibited widely both nationally and regionally.
