What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Jodi Ohl

At, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.

In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:

1. What do you do?
2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use

Please read on to find out more about Jodi Ohl.

Jodi Ohl
Mixed Media Artist
Aberdeen, NC

What do you do?
I am a largely self taught mixed media artist, currently residing in Aberdeen, NC but originally from Dunkirk, NY.

My work is known for it's distinct texture, bold colors & color combinations and often whimsical subjects. I've been published in a variety of issues of national mixed media magazines, such as Somerset Studio and Cloth Paper Scissors. This year, I've also embarked on a variety of teaching engagements both locally and online.

While finding a sense of home and community tends to be a central theme in most of my work, I also incorporate the triumphs and struggles a woman faces finding balance while still pursuing her dreams.

My work can be found on Etsy: To follow my artistic and personal musings, please visit my blog Sweet Repeats: I also welcome emails and commission orders at

How do you do it?
My technique involves incorporating a variety of acrylic mediums and assorted ephemera to build the base of most of my paintings. Then I finish them off with journaling, charcoal and pen enhancements. I typically work with a limited color palette within collections of 5-10 pieces.

Why do you use
As an artist, has been a great partner in expanding my available inventory of artist goods. Not only is it affordable, the customer service is top notch. The partnership forged with each of their customers is truly a great asset the iPrintfromHome team offers to each and every one of their clients.
