A native of Peekskill, NY, Brooklyn-based artist Dannielle Tegeder received a BFA from the State University of New York at Purchase and an MFA in painting and drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Tegeder works in the intersection of visual art and literature. For the past 15 years, her work—paintings and drawings, plus large-scale wall drawings, sculptural objects, and animation—has explored abstraction and the legacy of modernism, and has been exhibited in more than 100 national and international gallery exhibitions. She has held teaching positions at Cornell University and SUNY Purchase, and is currently an associate professor of art at the City University of New York at Lehman College.

Through a grandmother who immigrated to New York from Country Kerry, Tegeder recently became an Irish citizen.
