About

Artist Statement
Developing my creative voice has been intuitive and a narrative of my surroundings. My ceramic work is informed by my love of graphic design and illustration. Animals and birds appear prominently in my ceramic art and reflect many wildlife encounters both at home and while traveling. I employ a variety of methods to create imagery on clay, including sgrafitto and traditional printmaking techniques modified for my own purposes.
 

There is no greater compliment for me than to evoke an emotional reaction from my collector. My goal is to send each collector away with an extra bit of beauty that will forever reside in their home.

Biography
Born and raised in pure Michigan, Jennifer Rosseter received a BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design, with an Illustration emphasis. She is a practicing ceramic artist and painter and currently resides in St. Petersburg, Florida where she maintains a studio at the Morean Center for Clay. Having spent her youth attending Saturday classes at the Toledo Museum of Art, and many hours wandering through the extensive Egyptian collection, she is influenced by the animals and stylized simplicity of Egyptian art forms. She draws inspiration from both personal and imagined wildlife encounters both at home and abroad. Jennifer is a nationally recognized ceramic artist, winning awards for her complex sgraffito work. She has exhibited at numerous art shows and galleries including The Morean Art Center in Florida and The Cracked Pot Studio Tour, Grove Gallery, and Lansing Art Gallery in Michigan. She is also an award winning graphic designer and art director, having worked at agencies in Michigan before opening and running her own boutique graphic design firm, Image Creative Group.
