Jennie Mizrahi found a tape made of an interview when she was in kindergarten. The interviewer asked, "What do you do for fun?"
Jennie answered, "Art."
"And what do you like to do when you aren't doing art?" the interviewer asked.
There was a pause on the tape, then Jennie said, "More art."
Though she has pursued many other interests, she constantly returns home to her first love. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture, then moved to Loveland, Colorado to work at a bronze foundry and pursue her art career.
A few years later, she discovered she also had a passion for teaching, and earned her licensure for K-12 art instruction and her Masters in Teaching at the University of Northern Colorado. While teaching full time, she continued to show and sell her work.
She took a few years off from art production and sales while completing her Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Denver, where she has also served as an adjunct professor. (If you are interested, her dissertation on the underachievement of creative students can be found at https://digitalcommons.du.edu/tls_doctoral/10/ ) With her degree complete, she has returned to art with a passion, and is once again participating in shows across the region.
