Cara Jaye is a multi-faceted artist combining conventional drawing, traditional and alternative photographic processes, and various printmaking techniques together with painting and collage. She considers drawing her first and primary medium – she loves drawing for its immediacy and intimacy of marks placed directly on the page.

Born in Solana Beach California, Cara Jaye lives and works in Bellingham WA where she is Professor of Art at Western Washington University.  She received her MFA from the University of Colorado in Boulder, and her BFA from Parsons School of Design in New York City. Additionally, she has studied at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France.
