Karin Jones is a Vancouver-based artist with a background in jewellery and metalsmithing. While in the Master of Fine Arts program at NSCAD University in Halifax in 2012/2013, she began exploring hair as a craft medium, a marker of race and culture, and an expression of feminine identity. Halfway through her MFA, she was hired as an instructor at Vancouver Community College’s Jewellery Art and Design program, where she is currently also serving as Department Head. She will return to Halifax to complete her degree in 2017. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States, Finland, Korea, and Japan.
