Jenny Dowd is an artist interested in objects that are collected, the motivation behind collecting and the interaction of these objects. Primarily working in clay, she creates objects for table, wall and floor surfaces as well as installations designed to interact with their space and each other. Sculpture, drawing and utilitarian pottery are part of Jenny’s quirky conversations where her relentless questions stem from science, daily oddities and observations. Jenny grew up in Kansas where she found inspiration from epic road trips, constant reading and creative, inventive parents. After attending Kansas State University where she studied ceramics, she completed an MFA in Ceramics with a minor in Fibers at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Jenny has taught and shown her art across the country, currently she teaches at the Art Association of Jackson Hole and Central Wyoming College. Jenny lives and works in her home studio in Alpine, Wyoming. http://www.jennydowd.com/
