From the South Dakota Governor's 8th Biennial Art Exhibition catalog:

Driven by an innate curiosity and love of discovery, Anna Youngers (b.1985) uses her brushes and canvas to investigate a deeper understanding of the natural world. Her sensitive and timeless depictions reveal beauty in both the common and the extraordinary. Youngers began her professional training early in life when at the age of sixteen she undertook a four-year classical apprenticeship at Pantura Studios with painters Hans-Peter Szameit and Sanna Tomac. She credits her classical atelier training and apprenticeship with providing her a strong foundation in draftsmanship and the technical craft of oil painting. Her working methods today continue to evolve, but remain strongly rooted in the classical tradition. Upon completion of her training in 2006, Anna opened her studio in downtown Sioux Falls, SD, where she currently paints and teaches private classes.

Anna has received many honors for her work including acceptance to the prestigious Hudson River Fellowship 2010, ACOPAL 2011 Finalist, ARC International Salon 2006, tuition scholarships from the Scottsdale Artist School (2007-2010) and South Dakota Artist Fellowship Grant (2008, 2012, 2018). She has also been featured in “Southwest Art,”“Plein Air Magazine” and “American Art Collector.”
