Jess Rosenkranz is a design consultant, artist, and maker of miscellany.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design in graphic design, her artwork has long been entangled with themes and influences from her design work. The terrariums are a result of the convergence of a fanatical obsession with plants and an ongoing exploration of using the laser engraver as a tool for unexpected materials. A way of controlling nature and finding tiny narratives hidden in the resulting landscapes.
She has a special interest in the following topics: unnatural nature, colors, behavioral economics, patterns, Haw Par Villa, tiny things, and cake decorating. Her Pawtucket, RI home is shared with two cats and many, many plants.
