Annie Irene Hejny is a Minnesota-born visual artist, intentionally exploring the local environment to create abstract paintings and drawings. She studied at the University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine University, earning a double-major B.A. in Elementary Education and Studio Art (Summa Cum Laude, 2012).

Over the past four years, she has successfully completed nearly 50 commissioned projects for galleries, private collections, and public institutions, locally and nationwide including The University of Minnesota Mill City Clinic and Hilton Embassy Suites.

In June 2015, she participated in the Women’s Art Institute (WAI) studio intensive at St. Catherine University. In June 2016, she returned as a WAI Teaching Assistant and completed a two-year professional mentorship/protégée program through Women’s Art Resources of Minnesota (WARM). In 2015 and 2016, her paintings were selected and sold at the annual Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts Exhibition, receiving the ArtReach St. Croix award (2016).

She was artist-in-residence with Lanesboro Arts (2017), The Science Museum of Minnesota Pine Needles Residency (2018), and the Grand Marais Art Colony (2019). She has exhibited her art in many solo and group exhibitions in galleries such as the University of Minnesota Katherine Nash Gallery (Minneapolis, MN), The Phipps Center for the Arts (Hudson, WI) and Public Functionary (Minneapolis, MN). Her largest solo exhibition to-date at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in 2018 (Winona, MN) received 10,000+ visitors and one painting remains in the museum’s permanent collection. Hejny is currently a member of Form + Content Gallery in Minneapolis and a 2020 recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant. She resides in St. Paul and continues to explore ways to honor the land and water that she loves.
