Hi! My name is Jennifer, Jen to most people. I am a mom, a daughter, a sister, a musician, and an artist. I love music, mainly rock and metal, and I love art, especially abstract. I started drawing when I was 2, and I would illustrate book "covers" for any books I aspired to write at the ripe age of 8. :) Through high school, my love for fine and English arts grew. I entered a few drawings in the local fair in 1999 and won first place, and I began writing poetry and submitting my poems for publication. In 2006, I was accepted into the University of Texas in Austin for Studio Art. While my stay at UT was short lived, the techniques I learned in my design and drawing classes were extremely valuable, and hold dear to my heart today. I have also written several acoustic songs and play guitar.
I am a very sensitive, emotional person, and consider myself an empath. I can immediately sense moods and vibrations from people around me, and a lot of those aspects influence my current artwork. My favorite color is blue, so if you see a lot of blue, I probably painted it! I am currently working on one word emotion abstract paintings, but my mind may wander to the night sky or the beach every once in a while (there's just something about stars and waves that are mesmerizing to me...). I am in the process of stepping out of my comfort zone and getting myself "out there" after years of knowing I should be getting my art into the world, but always being afraid.
