Ann Marie Greenberg was born in Kansas City Missouri. In her teens, her family moved to Texas where she went to Booker T Washington High School for the Visual and Performing Arts. She graduated from Kansas City Art Institute in 1990. A resident of Chicago, she uses plastic and other discarded items in prints and drawings to point to the puzzle of tangled webs of consumption and waste and the human impulse for beauty. Recent exhibits include Object Traces, with Teresa Getty at Rare Nest Gallery, Chicago.
