Anna Galluzzi is a studio artist and educator currently working out of the Corpus Christi metroplex who specializes in painting, fibers and photography. 

 

Originally from the Texas Hill Country, Galluzzi moved to Dallas, TX in 2013 and received her BA from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2017. In May of 2021 she earned her MFA in painting and drawing from Texas Woman’s University in Denton, TX.  While the media she uses ranges, the underlying themes of self discovery and emotional coping are present throughout her varying bodies of work. She is heavily inspired by literature, popular culture, and all things weird.
