Ingrid Stobbe is an award-winning Visual Media Artist and Educator. She creates a diverse range of artwork including both narrative and experimental pieces that embrace the artistic medium as a vital component of effective storytelling. Her work poses questions of self-identity, feminism, and perception while investigating the most effective manner to convey meaning in artistic dialogue; whether that finds expression in film, paint or writing is dependent on the nature of individual stories. Her work often exists at the intersection of genres, asking engagement from the viewer as questions arise concerning the relationship between presentation and observation. But always, the art maintains and celebrates the unique properties of included media, while commenting on form and its implications in storytelling.

Ingrid's films have screened and exhibited nationally and internationally, and recently featured in
International Encounters Traverse, Boston Voyager Magazine, and Palaver Journal. Her writing can be found in a variety of publications, including Mantra Wellness Magazine, Psychology Tomorrow and The Glossary. Her film Orange can currently be seen in SoAnyway Magazine's 2nd Volume and on exhibit at the Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture, while select paintings were recently chosen for "The Art Edit," Condé Nast's curated advertorial campaign

showcasing independent two-dimensional artists in House & Garden, UK. She is co-author of the upcoming book Being Creatively Limited with
William Pace (Focal Press, 2021), and is currently in pre-production on her short film The Dog Star, and media installation Contextual Bodies.

Ingrid is an Assistant Professor at Lesley University's College of Art & Design in Cambridge, in the Department of Digital Filmmaking. She is on the board of Women in Film & Video New England, as well as the editorial board of the Journal of Film & Video, and previously served on the Marketing Committee for the Metropolitan New York Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women. She has comprehensive experience designing curricula for the visual arts, and in 2020 her pedagogy was internationally recognized with the University Film and Video Association Award of Teaching Excellence. She is a frequent juror for numerous film festivals, and regularly speaks at various institutions about media production's evolving landscape, and its broader social impact.
