Jamie Weinfurter was born and raised in rural central Wisconsin. From a young age, Jamie developed a passion for drawing and crafting as a means for self-expression, which developed into investigations of gender and identity in sculpture. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with an emphasis in 3D in 2018. There, Jamie exhibited her work in various juried two-person and group shows, co-chaired a student-run juried show, became an officer for Student Art League, received multiple scholarships and the Oscar grant for her senior exhibition, and interned as the 3D and ceramics studio technician for two years.
Since graduating, Jamie has participated in numerous group shows in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin; had sculptures publicly exhibited in Illinois and Minnesota; and has created outdoor sculpture at Josephine Sculpture Park, Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum, and Franconia Sculpture Park in 2019. Jamie has completed a continuation of her internship at Josephine Sculpture Park in fall of 202. She followed that up by completing an artist fellowship at NE SCULPTURE | Gallery Factory in the summer of 2020, which progressed to Program Assistant in 2021.
