Jennifer Davis is an illustrator from Minneapolis whose work focuses on surreal depictions of humans and animals. Her work has been described as “simultaneously childlike and dark.” Davis has exhibited at several galleries across the country.

Long’s sculptures are formed from crocheted or felted wool and deal with organic shapes, bodily forms and bright colors. In addition to exhibiting nationally, she teaches visual arts in the fiber studio at the Interlochen Center for the Arts.
