Jenny Shamess

Caledonia, MI, United States

I was born in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, but grew up most of my young years in the Middleville / Yankee Springs area of West Michigan. I am a 1999 graduate of Thornapple Kellogg Schools in Middleville, MI, and a 2003 graduate of Colorado College in Colorado Springs, CO with a B.A. in Art History. Since then I have also lived in Missouri, Belgium and Philadelphia, PA until moving back to Michigan in 2013. Most recently I have enjoyed teaching art projects to my kids and other home educated children based on art history such as Minoan Frescoes, Phoenician Lettering, Early Christian/Byzantine mosaics, Illuminated Manuscripts, etc. ---With the places we have lived, we've been able to visit art museums and architectural sites all over the US and Europe. Some favorites are the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, The Alhambra, the Barnes Foundation, The Met and the Cloisters.
