About the Speaker

Anna Lee is a Minnesota-based artist and designer with a heart for community and a mind for industry development for independent fashion and the arts. A lifelong connector, creator, and learner, she has helped other designers and artists expand their creative endeavors through workshops, mentorships, and a fashion design incubator in Minneapolis that also created Fashion Week.Workerby (pronounced worker-bee) Studio encompasses all that Miss Lee does in one 800 square foot studio. It is there she balances client design work, Ruby3 hats, painting, develops new workshops and resources for creatives, and collaborates with likeminded souls who share her vision for a life made better through creating new art together.

Additional Details

When you look at the artwork of Frida Kahlo or Salvador Dalí, there’s an element of surprise. Why does it feel familiar yet also otherworldly?

Surrealists sought to break free from the shackles of the rational mind and dive into the deep end of the unconscious. The canvas, then, became a mirror for what emerged out of that process. This movement was inspired by events in the 1920s on the heels of the first world war and continues to influence artists, writers, photographers, and filmmakers. This cultural and artistic movement ushered in new techniques that helped humans expand their minds.

Today, we recognize a sense of the surreal in unexpected moments in daily life. Art exhibits like Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Room are becoming readily available, encouraging people to immerse themselves in experiences that break reality. A ballet performance or a silent meditation retreat can be a dreamlike experience.

Whether we experience a surreal moment or dabble in processes like drawing without thinking or writing without self-editing, there’s something to be learned about ourselves and what lingers under the hood of our desires to keep life orderly and controlled.
