Jytte Fogh Lokvig grew up in Denmark. Her family emigrated to the United States when she was a young adult. Once settled in Southern California, Jytte followed in her artist father’s footsteps, as an exhibiting artist and later expanding beyond fine arts into fashion design, community celebrations, arts advocacy and art education. She was a founding member of the first publicly funded experimental school in Los Angeles, which became the model for magnet and charter schools.
After she relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico, chance brought her into the world of dementia in 1994. She quickly found that her wide experiences in the arts, education, and interaction with people made her perfectly prepared for working with this population.
