Dea Jenkins is an interdisciplinary artist and writer. Through a series of life twists, including deciding not to pursue a career as a professional track runner, Dea “accidentally” discovered an interest and a talent for art making.
As she discovered the world of painting, drawing, and graphic design, she ultimately chose to pursue an undergraduate degree in filmmaking from The Art Institute of Houston. Filmmaking taught her the value of producing. As a producer she discovered that she could create spaces to share her own work, but also generate opportunities for other creative minds to journey with her on these projects.
In 2017, Dea moved to Pasadena, California to pursue a dual masters degree in Theology and Intercultural Studies with an emphasis in Theology and the Arts. Post-graduation, she is currently engaging questions on spirituality, collective consciousness, and social healing through multiple mediums.Follow Dea on Instagram @dea.artist.
