Ana Wolovick earned her MFA in Painting from Yale University in 2005 - as a Jacob K. Javits Fellow. She received her BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, in 1997

Between undergraduate and graduate school Ana was a Technical Director (TD) for the "South Park", TV show (seasons 1 & 2). She then became the Supervising TD for the Paramount feature film "South Park, Bigger, Longer & Uncut," in which she also has a cameo. (See the Black & White USO show sequence).

In 1998 Wolovick collaborated with sculptor Charles Long on three digital print editions (produced by MuseX Editions, Los Angeles, CA). The first edition, "The Internalized Page Project, vol. 1," is held in the Harvard Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge, MA, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, and the NY Public Library, Print Collection, New York, NY. The piece was also included in PS1's 2000 "Greater New York" (Wolovick is uncredited) and a 1999 exhibition at Bonakdar-Jancou Gallery (Wolovick is uncredited), which was favorably reviewed by Ken Johnson of the New York Times.

Ana has been an invited artist-in-residence at: "Altos de Chavon," La Romana, Dominican Republic (2002); Beta Local's inaugural "Walking Seminar" throughout Puerto Rico (2013); the "SOMA Summer Program" in Mexico City (2015); and with Culture-Vultures in Sefrou, Morocco (2017). She has been an invited critic at the RU Residency, the NARS Foundation, and Parsons Fine-Arts Program in New York City. She has exhibited at various venues in the US and Europe.

In 2015 Wolovick curated and hand-produced "PartA- PartB," a limited-edition box-set of reproductions from 33 emerging and established artists and writers. In October of the same year, she co-founded "Black Ball Projects" (BBP) as an artist-run commercial gallery; by the end of 2018, she had transformed the space into a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Arts Organization. Ana sits on Black Ball Projects' Board and is the Treasurer & Acting Secretary of the organization.

Wolovick maintains her studio practice, living and working alongside her husband, Alex Lemke (a VFX Supervisor & co-owner of East Side Effects) in their small loft on the South Side of Williamsburg, Brooklyn,
The couple is currently renovating a home in the Salento region of Lecce Province, Puglia, Italy. (See instragam for photos and updates). Their primary and legal residence is always at their home in Brooklyn, NYC.

My work is currently dedicated to Edna, our beloved 18 year old cat, who recently died on her own terms, in my arms.
