Welcome to Platemark, a podcast about art, ideas, prints, and printmaking

Platemark s3e26 the print ecosystem: Jennifer Mack-Watkins

Platemark s3e26's guest is Jennifer Mack-Watkins, and artist and children's book illustrator based in Savannah, GA. Her work looks at social conformities that limit us and box us in, whether beauty, relationships, body image, power, or gender roles. Her work often features young Black children playing, celebrating their innocence and freedom.

Jennifer recently illustrated a children's book called Ya Gotta Meet Mr. Pierce! and she is currently on a book tour. The process of how the book came together with two authors and an illustrator is fascinating.
