Emily Jalinsky is a printmaking/mixed media artist, organizer, and educator in Iowa City, IA. She received a BFA in printmaking from the University of Kansas in 2012. Her works on paper, assemblages, and installations invoke mindfulness and resiliency.
She believes in accessible artwork, education, and community engagement. She is a leader at the Iowa City Press Co-op, active in the national Artist/Mother Co. community, and a member of the feminist art collective, Bluestockings.
Her art practice centers around mental health and changing states within the body through semi-abstract organic forms and repetitive patterns. Through implementing mindfulness, repetition, and ritual she brings each piece into a state of contemplation and stillness.
