Jennie Mizrahi 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, expanding beyond sculpture to painting, mixed media, calligraphy and illumination, as well as pottery and fiber arts.
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.
She currently lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with her husband and three cats.
