Bio & Statement

Jini Kim Veenker is a Korean printmaker from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Although her BFA and MFA are in Painting, she picked up Printmaking in 2018 and is now obsessed. By carving an original image onto a block of linoleum or wood she is able to share her intimate, delicately carved stamps with a large audience. She currently teaches a few courses at Arapahoe Community College in Littleton, Colorado.

My linocut and woodblock prints draw inspiration from my Korean-Oklahoman background. Printmaking has a prolific history in East Asian countries as well as the Western world. Along with being used as a fine art, it is used as a way to spread information across wide platforms. My work encompasses the beauty of our ominous existence. Using linocut printing allows me to share these beautiful images while acknowledging a lingering sense of danger.
