Jolynn received her BFA in Jewelry | Metal | Enameling from Kent State University and her MFA in Metal from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including New York City, Brooklyn, Chicago, Portland, Minneapolis, Munich, Amsterdam and Nijmegen, Netherlands.

She received two Research and Creative Project Grants from the State University of New York at New Paltz. These Grants funded equipment and materials used to further the research of her ongoing body of work "rings of dust"—wearable objects that are created using a silver sintering process.

Jolynn’s work has been published in “On Offer," Klimt02, SNAG JAMS, and The Beauty Issue of AUTOR Magazine. In 2019, Jolynn received the SNAG Conference Student Scholarship, and her work was exhibited in the SNAG Student Show in Chicago. Her work was also selected for Galerie Marzee’s 33rd International Graduate Show in Nijmegen, Netherlands. As a result of this exhibition, she received representation from Intro by Galerie Marzee.

Recently Jolynn was selected as a 2019 | 2020 Artist-in-Residence at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts where she balanced teaching and art handling with a full-time studio practice. During this time, Jolynn expanded her research with a series of ongoing works—"twenty-four hours of silence," "dustprints," "file, pause, sort," and "surroundings"—that were included in a group exhibition at the Sandra Blain Gallery.
