Jody Joldersma is a visual artist based in Seattle, Washington. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Communication Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Jody is an alumni of the Feminist Intensive program at Soapbox Inc. and a National Artist at A.I.R. Gallery.
The interplay of gender, nature, culture, and the boundaries we place upon them is the focus of Jody's work. She creates visual narratives inspired by the experience of growing up caught between a collapsing conservative steel town and the rural escapism of her grandparent’s farm in the coal mountains of central PA. By layering distressed drawings, paint, and original photography, the construction and handcrafted quality of her work is still visible in the final image.
