I hold an MFA in Visual Arts from Hunter College in New York, NY, and an MA in International Relations from University of Chicago, IL. At Hunter, I was awarded the Hunter College Foundation Scholarship for exchange studies at the Slade, London.
Among the places, I've exhibited my work are:
Edward Hopper House, New York Center for Book Arts, A.I.R. Gallery, Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning, Bronx Arts Space and Flux Factory.
I've presented my work at the conferences of National Women's Study Association, Open Engagement and the Alice Austen House Museum as well as discussed it on NPR's The Brian Lehrer show. To realize my projects, I have received funding from Manhattan Cultural Arts Fund, Queens Arts Council and Norddjurs Kommune (Denmark).
My work is in the collection of Candida Höfer.

The Synthetic Zero events are a series of art events focusing on high quality experimental and contemporary work in different media. We don't typically specify a theme in advance for each event but instead work with ideas that emerge from the interaction between the submitted work and curatorial interests. By working this way, the events reflect back the dialogue and practice of artists involved and create evocative encounters for the audience.
Once you nearly complete your round around the space, you come across Anna Lise Jensen’s pieces. A combination of photographs taken in Jamaica, Queens coupled with excerpts of Paul Bowles, a Jamaica native, writing from his time spent in Tangiers. Jensen’s pieces were an inspiring way to end the show. While the other artists provided the public with the different realities of homelessness, she offers ways to deal with urban abandonment and displacement; focusing specifically on Jamaica. By keeping her proposal on a local level, I think Jensen instilled a feeling of community and alliance, a feeling you should walk away with.
