Hello, I’m Jennifer Wells, a full-time studio artist and educator who is currently living in the Tuscan countryside. I moved into my current studio space in September 2020, and have been slowly adding and improving to it.
I hold a Master of Fine Arts, in Metalsmithing & Jewelry Design and am honored to have my work in the collections of; Enamel Arts Foundation, Racine Museum, All Russian Museum of Decorative Arts, and in several private collections.
In addition to being a studio artist, I have completed artist-in- residencies at several craft school and organizations across the U.S.
Also an educator, I have taught as a visiting Artist and Instructor at Universities throughout the U.S and for study abroad programs based in Italy. I serve on the Board of Vita Institute and teach short workshops on various enameling and metalsmithing techniques throughout Europe and the U.S. In recent years I’ve curated multiple international exhibitions focused on jewelry and enameling.
Texture and Line are the main inspirations within my work. I use these two elements to represent the distilled moments of my life. Creating work that for me is meditative and representative of fleeting moments, a patchwork of my visual library and life experiences.
My hope is to capture glimpses of moments from daily life experiences to which anyone may relate.
