Biography

Hieronymus has an unusual and fascinating background. She was born in La Marque, Texas, right outside of Galveston. Her father, an engineer, moved his family continuously while Anne was growing up. Her myriad of childhood memories center around three locales: West Virginia, Connecticut and Brussels, Belgium and the numerous museums her parents would take her to as a child in the United States and Europe.  After her secondary education Hieronymus attended two successive art programs, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  She quickly realized academic life was not for her, and decided to seek her education elsewhere. Thus began the artist's discursive life journey of traveling and experiencing the world outside a conventional academic framework, instead finding rigorous ways on her own of training her eye to the nuances of shapes, design, textures and colors.

 

Traveling to Switzerland in 1980, Anne Hieronymus devoted herself for a year as an apprentice to a fabric dyer who used only natural dyes, mastering the intricacies of coloration and dye retention on textiles. When she returned from Switzerland, she opened and ran her own successful dye shop in Minneapolis until its closure in 1986. After moving to California, she began doing hair and makeup for film and theatre. She worked in the entertainment industry until she returned to school in 2003, subsequently earning her degrees from two of the most prestigious art academies in the nation.

 

Hieronymus was the recipient of two Claremont Graduate University Art Fellowships, The Claremont Graduate University Hill Crest Award, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago Student Leadership Award, and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago Chairman's Scholarship.
