Born in Heidelberg, Germany and raised bouncing between Southern Maine and Yonkers, New York, Jennifer Walker decided she wanted to be a jeweler at age 15 while taking a Metals course at what was then The Portland School of Art in Portland Maine. She attended Parsons School of Design in New York City for two years and then received her B.F.A. in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Making from Maine College of Art. She has lived in St. Louis, MO since 2008 where she resides with her family. She travels around the country doing juried art and craft shows and maintains a studio which is open by appointment.
Artist quote: “I have always enjoyed the physicality and repetition involved in making things. It makes me feel like Gepetto and I like that. I’m most happy working with my hands.”
