Born in 1967 in western Pennsylvania, Grossman moved to Kansas City in the late 1980’s, and over the last twenty-some years has established herself as a prominent painter and printmaker of eastern Kansas’s open prairie spaces and river valleys. Over the course of thirty solo shows in the Midwest and on either coast, Grossman has evolved a luminous and minimalist plein air style, focusing on the horizon and subtle shifts in light and color, weather and season. Based in Lawrence, Kansas since 1996, Grossman’s work is included in numerous public, private, corporate, and museum collections including the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overland Park, Kansas, and the Beach Museum of Art at Kansas State University. Grossman has completed numerous significant commissions including large canvases for the Chiefs Art Program at Arrowhead Stadium, the H & R Block Center, both in Kansas City, and the Kansas University School of Business in Lawrence. She was a 2009 recipient of the Kansas Arts Commission’s Mid-Career Fellowship and is an eight-time artist-in-resident in the National Parks. Grossman earned degrees from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the University of Kansas, Lawrence.
