Jennifer Brickey grew up in Waterford, Michigan and Maryville, Tennessee. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and her Masters of Fine Arts in Studio Art (Painting and Drawing) from Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Growing up in the suburbs has continued to be constant theme in her work. "I am intrigued by the effects of a personal environment. As much as I don’t want to admit that my current work is seemingly autobiographical, I am challenged by the various connections between my life and work" She uses drawing and painting as a vehicle for these explorations. "From intervals of disarray to obsessively tidy, my compositions are a direct metaphor for my own experience with nesting. Like the Rubik's cube, I am enthralled by an indescribable method of organization and placement. I compulsively rearrange and modify each composition in effort to find a complex system of interrelated parts and colors that is overly harmonious as well as nondescript."
