About the Artist
Anna Jacobson grew up on a family-owned organic farm in rural North Dakota where she was encouraged to explore, observe, learn and create. She continues to carry these principles with her as she creates and teaches art. Jacobson believes everyone should have the opportunity to experience art. Art should be part of a balanced and life-long education, providing learners of all ages with essential skills and knowledge they need to be productive and caring. Jacobson is currently the artist in residence in printmaking at the University of North Dakota as well as a teaching artist for the North Dakota Council on the Arts and for Grand Forks Public Schools. Jacobson received her BA in studio arts from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 2003 and her Master in Fine Arts degree from the University of North Dakota in 2010.
