The Art of Jacquelyn Schiffman

Jacquelyn Schiffman creates wall hangings and free-floating encaustic figures on spun-web polyester, the notable translucent industrial fabric she has been working with for over 10 years. These compositions grew out of an earlier two-dimensional format which have been reassembled into a combination of painting and sculpture.



Ms. Schiffman received her BA from the University of Michigan and her MS from Southern Connecticut University. She has studied in Paris at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere and Academie de Notre Dame des Champs and in NY at Hunter College, the New School, and the Art Students' League. She has received numerous awards for her work including an individual grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. She has also studied in Connecticut as the studio of Gerald Garston and the Studio of Madeline Sharrer. She is influenced by the poupees of Marta Kuhn Weber and Greer Lankton and the collages of Hannelore Baron.
