Description Jane Schiffhauer's work is about relationships, memory and mythology. She is interested in exploring how interpersonal relationships are mediated and refracted through time and memory to create personal narratives and myths. Schiffhauer's work often references the body and her personal experiences often act as a catalyst to investigate issues of gender and power. As a multidiscipliary artist she uses a variety of media including sculpture, video, installation, printmaking and photography to explore these themes.
Bio Jane Schiffhauer is a multi-disciplinary artist who makes objects, prints, drawings, sculptures, photographs and videos using a range of materials. She explores the human condition by focusing on the issues of relationships, memory and myths. Working from intuitive reflexes, Schiffhauer plays with both formalism and abstraction in creating work in both two and three dimensions.

In 2010 Schiffhauer earned her MFA in Visual Studies form the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Prior to that she earned a BS degree from Syracuse University and studied Graphic Design at Kent State University in Ohio and photography at Parsons in Paris. In the past she has been a resident artist at both Caldera in Oregon and Edenfred in Madison, Wisconsin.
