As a native of San Angelo, a quirky town in west Texas, Jen Rose found ways to entertain herself through creativity and small-town capers. She received her MFA in Ceramics from the University of North Texas in Denton in 2002 and remained in North Texas after graduating. Currently, she holds a faculty position at Richland College. In addition to her teaching, Jen Rose has exhibited regionally and nationally. Highlights include a solo exhibition at the Dallas Contemporary in 2010 and at Carneal Simmons Gallery in 2018. This November she will launch a one-person show at the Morean Center for Clay in St. Petersburg, Florida..
