Anna Tsouhlarakis (Diné/Creek/Greek) works across various media including sculpture, installation, video and performance art. She describes her work as a continued interest in building conceptual connections between seemingly disparate subjects by combining them to become the tool for deciphering as well as interpreting her own familial narratives. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College in Native American Studies and Studio Art, and her Masters of Fine Arts degree from Yale University. She was an art resident at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the summer of 2002.
