Ex art-schooler, community project builder, maker movement researcher, safety manual author, tiny house dreamer, best ideas in the shower-er.

Jen is an artist and maker who brings her passion for collaborative public art and a critical inquiry of the "maker movement" to work with Nation of Makers,, Make: Magazine, We the Builders, Station North Tool Library, and others.

Jen went to school for fine art at MICA, but finds herself covered in sawdust and solder more often than paint these days. She gets her best, most epic ideas in the shower washing off said sawdust, and will someday pursue her dream to build a pop-out workshop / tentfort / tinyhome inside a tourbus, and travel the Americas.

Jen is based in Baltimore, Maryland, where she is a resident artist at Open Works and a fellow at the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, focusing on the intersection of maker culture with education, career development, and equity.
