Meet the Artist: Jenne M. Currie, abstract painter & sculptor

Jenne M. Currie was born in Woodstock, NY into a family of illustrious artists and received considerable art training from her parents while still a child.  After leaving home, she attended Boston University’s School of Fine Arts, the Art Students' League of NY and later obtained her bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, from Hunter College.  She spent two summers in the Tomassi Bronze Foundry in Pietrasanta, Italy, where she learned the lost wax technique of casting.  While Currie began her career as a painter, she quickly found she loved cutting and arranging shapes, first with welded steel and later by making wooden constructions.  The latter medium has proven to be one of her favorites, melding her love for assembling with her passion for applying color to a surface.  Currie began exhibiting her work in New York City in a variety of venues while still in her twenties.  Her work has since been exhibited widely throughout the Northeast and is represented in numerous private collections throughout the US.  Currie taught art to children in the New York City public school system for years.  She currently conducts adult workshops at the Woodstock School of Art and the Art Students' League of New York.  Her work can be seen at
