Met Vet is excited to showcase talented artist Jennevieve Schlemmer.

Jennevieve believes in following as many avenues in art as possible. She started her career painting murals in Seattle and studying jewelry design at North Seattle Community College. She soon discovered she wanted to combine the intricate work of jewelry with the large scale of murals. This led to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from the University of Washington. At UW, her focus was public art and outdoor sculpture, fostering a desire to create long lasting pieces to be enjoyed by many.   Jennevieve turned to mosaic as a way to create color, texture, scale, and longevity. Her recent large scale work focuses on mosaics in public places; Cheney Stadium, Seattle Country Day School, a decorative outdoor wall near Lake Washington, and a Tacoma police Sub-station. Recently, Jennevieve shifted her work toward smaller, intimate sculptures with a focus on found objects and recycled materials. She moved to Tacoma, Washington (from Seattle) in 2004 in order to be part of a smaller, more connected artist community. She feels she was welcomed with open arms!
