Jenie Gao

Jenie Gao is an artist and printmaker specializing in the mediums of woodcut and ink drawing. Her work focuses on the interdependence of preservation and change. She discusses how the objects we choose to keep and places and images we associate ourselves with act as anchor points in our families, friendships, and relationships. The desire to anchor ourselves in familiarity contrasts with the need to grow amidst inevitably variable surroundings. At the same time, a grounded sense of identity enables further growth, by creating opportunities to connect with others and change along with our environment.

Jenie received her BFA in Printmaking/Drawing from Washington University in St. Louis. She has exhibited her work nationwide and currently lives and works in Milwaukee, where she operates her studio and gallery practice in the neighborhood of Bay View.

She makes an award-winning strawberry rhubarb pie.
