bio

Graduating with an MFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design from San Diego State University, Jenny Yoshida Park set out into the cruel world on her own to make books, draw pictures, and print things the old-fashioned way. Don't get her wrong, she likes new technology as much as the next girl (have you met her dear companion, YouTube?). But she realizes that one cannot live on technology alone. Stick some pencils and paper in there and you've got yourself a stew going.
She likes to attack strange and interesting new projects and figure out what materials can be used to convey a desired message. She likes to think of funny phrases, cut things out of paper and stick them to other pieces of paper with Scotch brand adhesive tape. She takes pleasure in lists, dictionaries, encyclopedias, charts, maps, and trivia. She enjoys filling out forms, labeling things, and addressing envelopes by hand. Jenny's lovely and supportive husband, Albert Park, is an actor and filmmaker. Their two cats, Mochi and Ramona Quimby, are pretty much freeloaders.
