MY NAME IS Jen
I've been an artist for as far back as I can remember, and have been perfecting my technique every step of the way. For me, each piece created is a learning experience. I grew up watching Bob Ross paint his pine trees and effortless mountains, all the while instilling in me that there are no mistakes in art, only happy accidents. I was also greatly inspired by a woman named Nan, that I took private lessons from in New Hampshire, in 1995. She encouraged me to think outside the box of only shading with black, always had incense burning, and gave us dried apricots to snack on. She is also a big reason why I've decided to explore the world of teaching private lessons myself; I'd love to be someone else's "Nan" one day.
I currently volunteer teaching group art classes once a week in Marietta. It's an amazing community center for those in recovery from addiction.
I earned a 2 year certificate from Chattahoochee Technical College for Digital and Multimedia design in 2014. I've also been studying German for about a year and a half. I would love to travel there one day and paint Plein Air (and if you don't know what that is, I'll teach you!)
I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to becoming a better artist!

Jen is great! She made an amazing painting for my Dad for his birthday. It was a photo of us from over 35 years ago that she made come to life again. He loved it!

I'm in no way an artist. But I decided to open myself to the experience of trying some of Jen's classes. I'm so grateful the the experiences I have had in her class. I feel like I am an artist. She made it so easy. Even when I felt I made a mistake, she was like no problem it's fine. It was fine, my pictures are amazing. I have completed 3 classes with her and I'm going to more.... You will not regret the experience..... Paint on people, paint on.... I'll see you in class....😀😀✍🎨🎨🎨+ Read More
