Artist BioJowita was born in Poland and as a teenager moved to Chicago. The experience of relocation and immersion into the new culture constitute a significant premise in her work. Jowita received her BFA in painting in 2003 from Illinois State University. She has attended artist residency in Italy and in the fall of 2010 was awarded the Kimmel Harding Nelson residency. Since March of 2011, she has been a participating artist at the School 33’s artist in residence program in Baltimore.
