Jenifer K Wofford

San Francisco, CA

Jenifer K Wofford is a San Francisco artist and educator whose work plays with notions of hybridity, authenticity, and global culture, often with a humorous bent. She is also one-third of the Filipina-American artist trio Mail Order Brides/M.O.B.. Wofford’s projects have been presented locally at the Berkeley Art Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Minnesota Street Project, and further afield at DePaul Museum in Chicago, Silverlens in Manila, and Osage in Hong Kong. Wofford received her BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and her MFA from UC Berkeley.

“My creative logic is shaped by a lifetime of international and intercultural experiences, being raised in a mixed Filipino/American family in Hong Kong, the UAE, Malaysia, and the California Bay Area, as well as 20 years as an educator in a broad range of communities. This worldview is inextricable from my practice.”
