About J.D. Fleishman

J.D. Fleishman has been practicing performance art for nearly thirty years. Ms. Fleishman's actions have been seen throughout the United States and Europe, in the Middle East and in Sri Lanka. She has taught art--fine art, performance and commercial art--at various universities; among them Parsons School of Design in Manhattan, Herning Hogeskool in Denmark, and University of Utrecht, Netherlands. Fleishman is the recipient of many prestigious grants and awards, including the Pollock-Krasner and Basis Beurs. She has also been given residencies around the world, five in the U.S., three in Europe and one in Israel.

Fleishman's talents are not limited to performance art. She is a well-respected painter, photographer, sculptor, and illustrator whose work (in several capacities) has been published by Abaton Book Company.
