Annie Beach is a visual artist, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, currently acquiring a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honours at the University of Manitoba's School of Art. Beach is a Cree and Saulteaux iskwew with family from Peguis First Nation, Treaty 1. Her body of work addresses the over-sexualization of Indigenous women, and challenges these ideas with sex and body positive work. Her work also addresses stereotypes regarding Indigenous identity by use of counteraction, exaggeration and humour. Beach is on the School of Fine Art Student Association as Co-President and holds an executive position with Canadian Federation of Students Manitoba component. She sits on the Flux Gallery and Ace Art Inc. boards and instructs art workshops, with a variety of non-profit organizations. Beach has also curated, designed, and executed a number of public Mural projects throughout the city of Winnipeg with the help of community members and youth participants, and has had public art displayed nationally, with hopes to make art that involves community participation and to make art more accessible to the public.
