Guest Artist Feature: Jeanna Olson, Photographer + Blogger

I’m a midwestern girl with good intentions and bad knees. I majored in English and theater (unemployable) at the local university and then stuffed my curriculum with journalism classes to keep my parents happy.

So I’ve had a long career in food service.

My dad had cameras and guns and was determined I try both. I didn’t care for guns but liked the low-risk, high-reward of shooting someone with a camera. I remember using Pocket Instamatics and Polaroids and finally my dad’s old Petri. But it wasn’t until I got my hands on a Pentax K-1000 in J-School that things really started to click, pun intended.

I’m the most amateur of photographers but I always have fun trying—the idea behind both my blogs. My blog, The Ched Curtain, refers to the Wisconsin/Illinois state line, a line I no longer wish to cross (over the hill).

The last time I went to Chicago was for my longer running blog, The Wisconsin Candy Dish, when I got to roll through the sugar charged All Candy Expo (a life long dream after I saw it on The Simpsons). I started "The Dish" when I was in tech school, still trying to be a useful member of society, and kept it going to get free candy.
