Jennifer Tomaiolo has earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, a Masters in Fine Arts from Brooklyn College and an Associates of Science in Chemistry from New York City College of Technology.
From her studio in the Bronx, she studies and experiments with the interposition of patterns and the landscape, natural rhythms that have been perceived and explored by artists in cultural patterns throughout art history. She researches and engages the iconography of art history with an emphasis on the role of women, piecing together a story that is not in the written record, a story that has been downplayed and distorted, but of which traces remain in imagery.
Outside her studio, she travels to ancient, cultural and natural places and museums of the Mediterranean, Near East and America to research art history and uncover patterns in the cultural and natural landscape, with a particular interest in Greek, Roman and Islamic mosaic and tile work, visiting archeological sites and museums in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Italy, Spain and Morocco so far and plans to visit more.
