Hi! I’m Jen, and it’s taken me a long time to admit I’m a creative person.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve denied being an artist, and how many times people have tried to convince me otherwise. It’s funny how we see ourselves, isn’t it? Creating art was always a hobby, and one I was afraid I’d lose interest in if I chose to make it a career. The truth of the matter turned out to be the exact opposite. I thrive when I’m making, and the more I do it, the more I love it.
I have a BFA in Studio Art from Youngstown State University. My concentration was in graphic design, though I also fell in love with printmaking.
My graphic work tends to be simple, straightforward, and colorful. There’s enough clutter in the world; I strive for clarity.
My printmaking leans mostly abstract and is also quite colorful. I’m a planner by nature, but when I’m creating these works of art I can let go, experiment, and let the process take over.
I hope you’ll love the work as much as I love to create it!
