Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm an artist, graphic designer, and storyteller living near the west coast of Florida. I graduated from Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida with a BA in Visual Arts and minor in Psychology in December 2023. I started painting as a child and grew passionate about it as a teenager when it became a way for me to express my lifelong battle with chronic pain that couldn’t be expressed with words alone. I primarily focus on creating acrylic and oil paintings in an abstract expressionist style through an intuitive process. I also paint watercolor illustrations or create linocut prints of flora and fauna as a way to explore the intersection between my spiritual life and the material world. My paintings and prints often express and explore themes of suffering, beauty, healing, growth, redemption, time, and the longing for eternity. I am passionate about how art can cultivate connection and restoration. When I'm not painting, I love to read, meet new people, worship with my guitar, go for contemplative walks, and photograph any interesting plants and animals I see along the way. My current dreams for the future are to keep sharing the goodness of God through my fine art and to write and illustrate children's books.
ARTIST STATEMENT
I create art in order to know God and attempt to reveal His glory through what I create. I express and explore themes of suffering, beauty, healing, growth, and redemption through abstract expressionism. I also create representational illustrations of animals, landscapes, flora, and fauna as a way to explore the intersection between my spiritual life and the material world. I work primarily in watercolor, acrylic, oil, ink, or digitally. These paintings and prints often explore time, the longing for eternity, and metaphors from Scripture.
