Ross Jahnke

Bachelors of Fine Arts (Painting &amo; Drawing), University of Wisconsin
Masters of Fine Arts (Painting & Printmaking), Louisiana State University

Ross Jahnke's work focuses on traditional oil paintings combined with screen printing. What unifies all the works is his consistent conceptual approach to the figure and screen print as a tool to invigorate and delineate space.

Jahnke is widely recognized as a printmaker and a painter but he didn’t always want to pursue both concentrations in the arts. Having studied painting and drawing as an undergraduate and even in graduate school, Jahnke was coaxed into taking a printmaking course by a graduate assistant. By the time he graduated, he had expressively mixed the two media.

Jahnke is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Nicholls State University and teaches printmaking, drawing and papermaking.
