Jen D'Amore was born and raised in the shadows of New York City, where her life was influenced by a mosaic of culture and music. Undergraduate studies took her down the coast, to the southwest, and abroad, studying in Siena, Florence, and London. Sculpture was chosen as her main focus of study, though painting and intermedia were close contenders. Often compared to Kiki Smith, the conceptual work Jen created required more dimensions as she evolved from two to three or more, creating sculptures she could climb into and interact with, and then wearable sculptures that developed into performance pieces. Film was also incorporated, initially as an exploration of capturing not just the information, but the experience of live art performances.
Always an observer, a sponge for information and experiences, Jen D'Amore is interested in consciously evolving as an artist and as a human being. Currently, she is balancing video editing, photography, fine art, and writing projects.
Jen is dedicated to working on projects that are educational, inspirational, or bring about awareness.
