My name is Jennifer Ivey, (formerly Jennifer Rose Anderson) and I am a passionate and dedicated theatre educator. I have been working in the art of storytelling and striving to bring art to audiences around the country for over a decade. With an Scene Design MFA program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign I learned strong skills in scenery, painting, props, costume construction, and lighting and have worked toward expanding those skills ever since.

I’ve worked as a designer, scenic artist, prop master, and educator, in university, community and professional venues.  I’m excited to keep learning and experiencing theatre and art, but most significantly to help young talented artist find their inspiration and hone their skills. I work for the moments when a student looks at me with bright awe in realization when they discover the solution to the problem was already there and all they needed was to see it. What we put on stage is a product of passion, art, and expression that is ultimately done to teach that lesson to our students as we work to tell beautiful stories.

I’m a paint nerd who enjoys twelve sided rubic puzzles, star trek and cross stitch. Please have a look around to get to know me and don’t hesitate to contact me, thank you for your time,
