Machine (BHAM), an arts initiative in Crown Heights, Brooklyn that addresses gentrification and community building.” Jennifer Hughes uses drawings, prints, and artist books that aim to tell visual stories about herself and her family. Most recent work has been a series of lithographs documenting memories of her mother's hands (baking, praying, braiding hair, etc), and collaborating with other artists in the Boston area where she currently resides. Jennifer teaches art at a private K-12 school, and has stated that she ‘tries hard to convert the youth into becoming printmakers.”
