Jennifer Day resides and works in Newburyport, MA. A native to New England, she grew up in the Boston area and in Dennis, where her summers were spent on Corporation Beach as part of a multi-generational extended family. Ms. Day was educated at Bowdoin College and subsequently at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Having taught art at St. George’s School and Phillips Academy, the artist then went on to the Graduate School of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her MFA in painting under the mentor-ship of Neil Welliver. For many years, the artist has balanced the concentration on her own work with that of teaching. She is a former adjunct professor of art at Colby-Sawyer College.
Ms. Day has been the recipient of both the New Members Jury Award and First Prize in the Summer 2006 Exhibition at the Copley Society on Newbury Street in Boston.
