Vanessa Kauffman Zimmerly

Vanessa Kauffman Zimmerly is a writer and visual artist. She completed her MA in Visual and Critical Studies at California College of the Arts in 2014, and holds a BFA in Printmaking from Pacific Northwest College of Art in her home state of Oregon. Both her scholarly and visual work focus on print culture as a proliferating catalyst for the organization of language, visual information, and codes. Invested in re-imagining the repositories of printed ephemera and the forms to which text clings, her work investigates the flexing boundaries of sensory interpretation and the physical experience of language.
