Born in Bremen in 1978, Anna Lena Straube studied sociology, philosophy and education (MA.) at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel from 1998 to 1999. From 1999 to 2004 she studied fine arts at the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts in Kiel with Professor Elisabeth Wagner and Professor Peter Nagel. This was followed (2004-2005) by postgraduate studies in art therapy at the HfBK Dresden with Professor Doris Tietze, internships in psychosomatic clinics Bad Bramstedt and Arnsdorf.
Since 2012 she has been a lecturer at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences for Education for the research world Blossin, establishment of a painting place after Arno Stern, as well as for adult education with a focus on “sustained shared thinking”.
Her artistic oeuvre is determined by the painterly exploration of femininity. She works in cycles of works that resemble a painterly round dance, in which she develops the colorfulness, content and her unique visual language.
Anna Lena Straube lives and works in Berlin.
