Annie Stromquist

 


 

Exploring the human condition through a poetic lens, Annie Stromquist works on paper with mixed media including printmaking techniques, drawing, painting, encaustic and collage. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and in Europe. She has received an international Pollock-Krasner Artist Fellowship and two Professional Artist Fellowships from the Arts Council of the City of Long Beach. She has been selected for three artist residencies – two visits for a month each in Newfoundland and four weeks in an electricity-free cabin in the desert hills above Temecula, California. These special “gifts of time” allowed her to focus entirely on artistic endeavors while also getting to know the surrounding community. Annie received a MFA in printmaking from CSULB and taught printmaking classes at Long Beach City College for twelve years.

"The Mid-City Studio Tour is a special weekend for me. I love having such a wide array of visitors to my normally very quiet work place. People ask interesting questions that often prompt me to think in new ways and the interactive weekend charges me up for new work after the tour is over."
- Annie Stromquist
