From Beyond the Studio Podcast:

"In our newest interview we're talking with Jenniffer Omaitz, a multi-faceted Ohio-based artist, about her studio work as a painter and installation artist, and her small marbling and book-binding business JC Marbling.  

Jenniffer is also an actively exhibiting teaching artist, who has shown widely around Colorado and Ohio, done artist residencies, and is one of the newest recipients of the Akron Soul Train Fellowship. 

In this episode, you'll hear more from Jenniffer on how she's steadily grown her art career as a painter, installation artist, and bookmaker, establishing herself within her local arts community, developing patience and persistence, and the freedom to weave together her creative pursuits. "
