Jana Zimmer has been a printmaker and mixed-media artist since 1995. International exhibits include the 34th International Miniprint in Cadaques, Spain, a three-woman exhibit, with a Czech and a German artist, in Freiberg, Germany, in 2015 entitled “We Are Still Here”, and exhibits in Prague and at the Terezin Ghetto Museum, in 2007. Two of her assemblage pieces, “For Ritta”, and “Balkan Ghosts” have traveled the world as part of the Women Beyond Borders international feminist exhibit (www.womenbeyondborders.org), and will be housed permanently at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

In September 2015 and October 2019, her work was included in the Jerusalem International Biennale. She was a presenter in March of 2015 at the Conney Conference at the University of Southern California and is also an author of an art book, with fiber artist Sharon Marcus, entitled “Collaboration”.

Her new memoir, “Chocolates From Tangier” was released by Doppelhouse Press in January 2023. This work traces her journey of Return, through her art, as the only child of two Holocaust survivors.

She has also been a practicing lawyer for 40 years and has authored the first ‘coffee table law book’, “Navigating the California Coastal Act” (Solano Press, 2018), which contains ten of her digital collages.

Jana’s work includes monotype, collage, assemblage, and mixed media on the themes of historical and political responsibility and memory.
