Jamie Ellen Davis
2008-2009Jamie Ellen Davis grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She attended Pratt Institute where she studied printmaking and puppetry. After graduating she worked along side Hanne Tierney, turning the story of Oscar Schlemmer’s Das Triadische Ballett into a toy theatre puppet show, performing the show at the 8th Annual Great Small Works toy theater festival in Brooklyn, New York. Jamie is currently working on creating an artist book that marries principal elements from puppetry and printmaking.
The Kahn Family Fellowship, in memory of our colleague Peter Kahn, is designed to offer opportunities to artists seeking further experience and professional development in printmaking and book arts, and is available to artists with postgraduate degrees in printmaking or book arts locally, nationally or internationally. The Fellow is given the privileges of a Printmaker Associate, including unlimited access to the studio to produce their own work, a stipend, the possibility of teaching workshops, and editioning for others on a fee basis, and will have a solo show here at The Ink Shop for the month of June.
