Jen Greely
Born and raised in Sonoma County, CA, Jen Greely earned Bachelors degrees in Economics and Italian from UC Davis and a Masters degree in Demography from the University of Pennsylvania. Her professional experience ranges from government research in banking regulation, teaching internationally on the collection and graphical representation of data, and researching religious populations while on faculty at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.
In 2004, Greely left the academic realm to focus on her family and she now lives in Westport, CT where she is pursuing her passion for the visual arts. Greely began studying classical painting methods in 2014, working in watercolor, inks, and encaustic. She recently expanded her studies to printmaking, studying with Chicago-based artist Jeffrey Hirst on merging the two by layering silkscreen printing into her encaustic paintings and exploring carborundum monoprinting over painterly backgrounds. Her newest work utilizes found objects to produce layered line and repetitive form as a means to explore universal human emotions.
