Carol Jessen captures the fleeting moods of cities and landscapes touched by fog, rain and elusive shadows. An artist for 15 years, Jessen attended San Francisco’s Academy of Art, studied design with William Lansberg, and learned traditional woodblock printing in Japan with master printmaker Toshi Yoshida. Jessen also works adeptly in pastels and oils. Culled from travels through Japan, Asia and Europe, her imagery expresses her feelings about the tension between content and form. Jessen has exhibited extensively throughout California, and two of her woodblock prints are displayed in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s permanent collection.
