Having explored a variety of media throughout her life, including silversmithing, batik, and fashion, Stroik currently focuses on painting and video. She works through the process of series, creating bodies of work that are ignited by ideas. She uses drawings, collages, personal photography, writing, and travel as the inspiration for her artwork. Within the medium of painting she explores the use of color and the contrasting elements of line, shape, and movement and will incorporate the use of the wood panel surface as an integral synthesis of her ideas. Having grown up with a father and two brothers that are all architects, she has always been enveloped by the arrangement of physical spaces and their interaction with light, shadow, and materials. She received her MFA in 2013 from the Mount Royal School of Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She currently has a studio at the Columbia Pike Artists Studios in Arlington, VA.
Within the medium of video, Stroik collaborates with her husband, musician and composer Douglas Kallmeyer and guitarist Tristan Welch within the group called Requiem. Their most recent vinyl record, POPulist Agendas (Mutineer Records), features the drummer Andrew Toy.
