″It was almost Valentine's Day and my heart was beating fast just thinking about footsteps coming up the stairs... so I soaked some paper and spent the day printing.″ --JW

Jan Wurm is an artist who divides her time between Berkeley and L.A., her hand between drawing and painting, and her reading between fiction and nonfiction. Wurm teaches for University of California Berkeley Extension and has lectured extensively as a guest artist. Wurm organizes and facilitates a Guest Artist Lecture Series for the Berkeley Art Center and is actively engaged in expanding the community forum for contemporary art dialogue. Through paintings, drawings, and artists books, Wurm examines daily life and close encounters to reveal aspects of contemporary culture which inform our relationships. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is in collections including the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Achenbach Graphic Arts Foundation, the New York Public Library Print Collection, the Archive Verein der Berliner Kunstlerinnen in Berlin, and the Universitat fur angewandte Kunst in Vienna.
