Another October
monoprint on paper
19 x 10 in.

As a child many Saturdays were filled with inspirational drawing and painting classes at the Chicago Art Institute, this instilled a life-long affair with the arts. A former KSU art professor once remarked my sketchbooks look like poetry. Who would have guessed this observation predicted the weaving of art and poems? Recent adventures involve collecting leaves for monoprints which may be converted into artist books.

Clarissa Jakobsons, Aurora, Ohio, teaches art and writing courses at Cuyahoga Community College. Her art work has been exhibited widely including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Baldwin Wallace College, The Artists Archive of Western Reserve, Words/Matter, as well as at San Francisco State, and internationally. Recently she enjoyed an artist residency at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center.
