She has worked with a variety of mediums, including film, installation art, and painting, and her art has been exhibited and screened at numerous festivals and galleries around the world.


Anke Schofield was born in Ithaca, New York in 1972 and was apprenticed as a professional photographer assistant when she was still in the 8th grade. Her father introduced her to the wonders of the camera early in life. Anke took the form readily and with enthusiasm. During high school, she apprenticed with a number of artists in the New York area. She was awarded a scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design where she earned a bachelor's degree in fine art. Throughout this period, Anke pursued her studies of color theory and painting, continuing to find in these endeavors greater creative stimulus and inspiration than she had known in her photographic work.
