About Jodi Oster
Jodi Oster believes art should make people feel good. She creates art to make people happy, as laughter is the best medicine. Humor is at the heart of her works, motivated to create art that makes people smile or giggle, the viewer’s joy her measure of success. Her works playfully incorporate a plethora of materials, ranging from acrylic, air dry clay, dish glass, beads, and other found objects. Her use of light and bright colors keeps her pieces light-hearted, with many of their compositions channeling a sense of happiness. The handmade quality is put to the forefront, the folksy feel indicative of something made with Tender Loving Care. As a stay-at-home mother, she taps in well with the aura of homeliness while equally capturing a sort of childlike delight in her works, whether two- or three-dimensional. Everything is stylized to the point that a viewer needs only a brief glance before going “Yup, that’s Jodi Oster.” Her work has been featured in craft shows in the tristate area.

“I like to create art that make people happy. Art should make you feel good. As they say, laughter is the best medicine.” Humor has been important to me all my life. I have always been attracted to people and objects that make me smile or laugh. If I could do this for others through my art then I feel I have succeeded.
