My name's Jennifer, and I'm from a small town in southern Louisiana. I have always enjoyed drawing and coloring as a child, and used it as an escape in early years. As I got older, life kind of got in the way and I somehow lost my enthusiasm for creating. I also never really gave myself a lot of credit for any of my artwork, and never thought of myself as an "artist" or "creative" at all really.
After becoming a makeup artist at a young age, I now realize that creation is a part of who I am and that if I had no creativity, I probably would never have reached the success I've been blessed with in my career. The more I develop and express the creativity inherent in me, the more fulfilled and at peace I feel. I've come to believe that art is not just something you do for a past time, it is much more.. It's a way of life..an expression of the soul. For me, it is a way to release emotions that I find so hard to do with anything else that I've tried. I know it's working when I lose track of time in what I'm doing! That's the best feeling in the world.
Finding my way back to my roots is so exciting to me and after a 7 year "break", here I am, starting fresh again. Fully alive and open to expression in all its form. I'm so happy to have found this site and find the differences in our expression both fascinating and inspiring. Can't wait to see how my art develops because of it!
Thanks for stopping in to check out my work and may God bless you! :)
