Jessie Horning

is a mixed-media artist. She received her BFA from Kutztown University, and is currently the Graduate Assistant of Printmaking at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA. Horning uses drawing, printmaking, painting, sewing and woodwork to create her mixed media prints, objects, and installations.

Horning’s work is influenced by an interest in skewing the familiar to make it strange. Recently, the tablescape has been a major source of inspiration. Horning works within this space to explore themes of domestic life, food, and family.

She is currently working on a series of mixed media pieces that seek to create a surreal visual narrative of people, processes, and philosophies connected with farming. When she isn’t making art, Horning enjoys looking at cats, growing plants, and collecting decorative textiles.
