Jennifer Akkermans is a Canadian artist, far from home. Originally from Hanna, Alberta, she currently lives and works in Waterloo, Ontario. In the fall of 2014, Jennifer packed her P.T. Cruiser and drove across the country to pursue her MFA at the University of Waterloo. Since then, she has used herself as a case study to examine how one might build a new home somewhere new.
In addition to her gallery practice, she also makes Homage Homes. Homage Homes are handmade replicas of real houses.
