Explore Erin Jacobi’s Work!

Come see what our awesome Art Intern Erin Jacobi has been up to this summer.
Born in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Erin’s family relocated to St. Germain when she was six months old and she has called the Northwoods home ever since. Erin holds a Bachelor of Science in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, with a concentration in printmaking. Her style of choice of is relief printmaking, a style in which the artist cuts or etches the printing surface, then creates prints of the design that remains on the original surface. “I fell in love with relief printmaking about three years ago because it is a very hands-on medium which combines drawing and the ability to create multiple copies of a single image,” said Erin.
Erin looks to art as a way to express herself and hopes to help others discover and learn about themselves during her classes at LOLA. She said “The action of carving an image into the material, whether it’s wood or linoleum, is very cathartic and soothing for me and helps me connect with my work. Many of my artworks throughout my collegiate career and afterwards are influenced by my personal memories and experiences in my life, both positive and negative.” When she is not creating art, Erin enjoys spending time with her family and her Golden Retriever Millie, taking photographs, reading, and cooking.
Erin was LOLA’s first art intern to concentrate on printmaking. She taught a variety of art classes at LOLA throughout the summer, including several classes focused on printmaking: Print Making -Skylines, Andy Warhol Pop Prints, and Exploring Prints, Patterns & Weaving Kente Cloth.
