She is a self taught artist who holds a Master’s degree in Math Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University. Jhina, a native Californian, has lived in San Francisco since 1994. She currently teaches algebra and geometry to middle school students.
Jhina is currently the highlighted artist at the GALLERY U - INFAMOUS show, her pieces have received a tremendous amount of attention and the show hasn't even opened yet. Rumor has it some are already sold or on reserve.
Jhina's multi layered technique is so fresh and inviting. Her works appear as delicate ceramic tiles and the depth of the images are mysterious, enthralling and potent. You can almost attach your own memories to her work, a day, a time, an event. Absolutley brilliant. Don't Miss the opening of INFAMOUS on February 25th from 6-9 at GALLERY U "Be There or be accused"
