Jet Orsi was born in Omaha, Nebraska and had lived in 4 different states before the age of 9. Her love of art was born from all that she saw moving as often as she did in her youth. This love drove her to get her BFA and Masters in Art Education at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. After graduation, Jet went into the art field as a freelance artist and illustrator. Her freelance career took her from Baltimore to Massachusetts to Florida, where she now resides and works, hoping to help spread beauty in art and education with the rest of the staff at Lighthouse ArtCenter.
