Anna Miriam Alfredson

(b. 1977, Leominster, Massachusetts)

Anna Alfredson is a Brooklyn based artist, art educator and mother. Raised in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, she is the youngest of four siblings. She was always surrounded by creativity at home. Her mother's paintings filled the house, her Nonna was the family's master tailor and culinary genius, her Nonno constantly working on something in his tiny basement wood shop.


Before moving to Brooklyn in 2006, Anna lived and studied in Montréal, Quebec, and Boston, MA. She was never satisfied with the scope of education in her degree programs and supplemented her education with art courses from neighboring Universities and art centers whenever possible. Finally, her love of both art and education combined as she began her teaching career guiding youth as they developed their portfolios at Massachusetts College of Art. Anna then solidified her career as an Art Educator in NYC, working as a Teaching Artist and as Assistant to the Chair of Art Education at Pratt Institute, earning her Masters in Art Education from NYU Steinhardt, and becoming a teacher in New York City public schools.


Throughout her life, Anna has continued her artistic practice and endeavored to balance her work as an educator and an artist. There is always a space for creating at home and ties to various creative centers being cultivated. She continues to curate her education through intensive art workshops, and collaborative art communities. She and her daughter live in Kensington, Brooklyn.
