Jessica Tenbusch was born in Metro Detroit in 1984.  In her childhood, she was lucky to share her home with a multitude of other animals and hundreds of house plants. Outside was always inside. She works with a variety of natural found materials and metal. Her work focuses on cycles and reverence of life and death and how all species interrelate to each other. She lives and works in Ypsilanti, Michigan, about 35 miles outside of Detroit. In 2014, she received her Masters of Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University concentrating in metalsmithing. Her practice is located within Ypsi Alloy Studios, a 3D arts studio she helps run with two other local artists.
