MEET THE ARTIST
* ORIGINAL PAINTINGS
“From broken and lost; to purpose and identity – my work is a visual diary of reinventing myself and rebuilding my life.”
Jennifer Scott is a mostly self-taught artist, located in Chicago, Illinois. When a life-altering illness left her bedridden and searching for her lost identity, a childhood passion for art was reborn. Jenny uses acrylic paint - often on texture-prepped canvases. The artist uses the bumpy, uneven texture of the canvas as a metaphor for the ups and downs we each experience as we navigate our lives. The rugged surface instantly removes any ill-perceived thoughts of achieving perfection – relieving pressure and allowing added freedom for artistic expression. While the artist likes to tackle an array of subject matter, much of her work is inspired by the beauty of Creation. Jennifer often attempts to personify elements of nature to share stories of human experience and emotion.
Jennifer continues to use art as part of her own personal healing and finds purpose in bringing this same opportunity to others. Jenny develops and facilitates guided creativity workshops that allow attendees the opportunity to connect more deeply with self and community – while having fun exploring various forms of artistic expression!
