Mixed media artist Jessica Braiterman received her BA from Barnard College and her MFA from the University of the Arts. Most recently, she studied with Jane Lackey at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
An early interest in gestural brush work led to an on-going fascination with line in space. She experiments with fibers, wire, books, and found materials seeking a balance of entanglement and light. Braiterman has had four solo shows and participated in numerous group exhibitions throughout the region. She has received Individual Artist Awards from the Maryland State Arts Council in 2007 and 2009 and was a semi-finalist for the 2009 Sondheim Prize and the 2009 Trawick Prize.
Currently, she teaches in the fibers department at the Maryland Institute College of Art and lives in Lancaster, PA.
