Meet HerStory 2009 Co-Curator, Jennifer Judelsohn

The Making HerStory series is proud to welcome past participant and long time friend, Jennifer Judelsohn, as the 2009 Co-Curator. Jennifer has been a pillar of support for the program since she and HerStory creator, Michelle d. Parrish, first met. Jennifer became one of Michelle's "go-to" people if she had questions, needed artists, or simply wanted to talk.

Jennifer is an artist and art curator, as well as a psychotherapist and educator. She is the author/illustrator of the book "Songs of Creation: Meditations on the Sacred Hebrew Alphabet," an awesome publication highlighting the beauty of her work, but also educating its readers about the Hebrew Language.
Her artistic ability is vast. Her current work as an artist is primarily of works done with acrylic paint on canvas. She previously created a series of mandalas in
Prismacolor pencil on black paper. She also has worked in collage,
watercolor, sculpture, assemblage, and mixed media.
She is a member of the Women's Caucus for Art and has served on the steering committee of WCA-DC for five years. She currently sits on the board of Project Create, an
after-school program of free, professionally taught art classes for
at-risk youth in Washington, DC. She has taught a variety of art classes
for children and adults and is currently facilitating a monthly seminar
on "Artmaking as a Spiritual Practice." She has been curating "The
Evolution of Art" series--which highlights the work of emerging local
arts--at Beanetics Coffee Roasters in Annandale, Virginia, since December 2007.
