Originally from Asheville, North Carolina, Jennifer Costa has lived in Peoria for the past 15 years. She is a Professor of Art and Teaching Chair of the Art Program at Illinois Central College. As a maker of studio furniture, her work often combines various materials such as wood, metal and glass. Her style can be defined as a modernized version of mission, art deco and art nouveau styles.
When asked about her work, she states, “My work tends to be functional, being that it’s either a table you can use in your home or a conceptual sculptural piece that begs to be played with. I enjoy working beyond the traditional boundaries of style and media when it comes to art that happens to be functional.”
