Jen Cole is a printmaker based out of the Bay Area, CA and artist-in-residence at Kala Art Institute. She worked as a fine arts printer for ten years after completing her graduate work at San Francisco State in 1985. Having since tackled jewelry design and pastry-making, she recently returned to printmaking.
At WSW, Jen explored new collograph and relief-printing materials, such as carborundum and acrylic, in the intaglio studio. Her practice centers on working through printmaking processes, from drypoint to monoprint, and what each means for new series of work.
