An Ohio native, Annie received her BFA in Animation and Fine Arts from the Columbus College of Art and Design. With her background in character design and storytelling, she reflects on and exposes this tension found in alienating common depictions of African-American Women in media.

Her work seeks to show the unique and complex reality of African-American women outside of these depictions. Through her faith and desire to see the image-bearing nature of African-American women represented she repurposes the methods, tools, and mediums that subjugate African-American female representation to stereotypes and objectification. Her work confronts, transforms, and exposes through mixed media works that use objects and visual references to the process of animation

like paint skins, hand-made registration bars, and hand-made lightboxes.

  Annie Chrissy Burley is represented by  Hammond Harkins Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, and has had her work exhibited at Priscilla R. Tyson Cultural Arts Center, Roy G. Biv Gallery, and elsewhere. She is a recipient of a 2022 Individual Artist Grant from the GCAC.
