Both a printmaker and a painter, Jahnke’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States. He is a recipient of the Louisiana Division of Art Fellowship and has received numerous grants for visual art projects.

“The Department of Art at Nicholls is like few other art departments,” he says. “The faculty interact extremely well and share ideas with each others. As a result there is interconnectivity among the courses and projects. I have not seen or heard of a better setting in which to teach.”
