Women Imprint is an ongoing project by Jana Marlene Mader and art historian Kaitlyn Allen. We introduce female creatives and their biographies based on the places they lived in: Who lived in a certain place and left a mark? Which places were important to a particular artist's life? Women Imprint focuses on women worldwide that have not yet received the recognition they deserve. 


The Podcast


Since February 2019, Women Imprint has its own podcast. We chat about the lives and achievements of women creatives throughout history as we dig into a different woman’s biographies every episode.  You can listen to it on iTunes here or PodBean here and Spotify here
