Artist statement by Jen: “Since 1984, I have been studying and passionately creating art in a variety of diverse mediums, and received a bachelors degree in studio art from the University of California in Irvine. Over the years, I have worked with ceramics, wood, metal, graphite, pastels, oil paint, watercolor, ink, mural painting, trompe l'oeil, acrylic paint and resin. The last two are now at the forefront of my current work.
I've been immersed in creating abstract ocean scenes in acrylic pigment and resin on wood, metal, ceramic and have now included other objects like trays, bowls, and tables to expand my scenes. The resin I use is a green product and is UV protected, scratch resistant, and food safe.
I am forever inspired by nature and my love of the ocean and beach life which shows in my work. I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I do creating them!”
