Jennifer Scott is a self-taught artist who started using her art to express what it’s like to live with chronic illness and chronic pain. She found that “showing” people the symptoms she experienced on a daily basis was easier than struggling to communicate the pain and frustration through words alone. Unlike most artists, Jennifer admits that she does not have a standout “signature” style or technique. Instead, she loves to explore with all different media, styles, and subject matter. Over the years, the subject of her pieces has expanded far beyond her original “Expressions of Lyme.” Cityscapes inspired by her hometown of Chicago, people, landscapes, florals, and abstracts have all become a part of her current portfolio. In 2017, Jennifer developed and implemented “Created to Create Ministries,” a local ministry where she helps people explore their individual creativity through various art projects, which culminate in discussions that carry a spiritual message - teaching the values of kindness, thoughtfulness, empathy, and beautiful acceptance of self and others. Jennifer is a member of the North American Christian Counselors Association with a certification in Pastoral Counseling. She also holds Therapeutic Art Life Coach certification and Therapeutic Art for Healing, Happiness and Stress Reduction certifications. She is a past member of the Oak Park Art League and current member of the Niles Artisan Guild. Jennifer most recently completed long term showings at two Chicago area galleries:  Connect Gallery in Jefferson Park and Salt Air Gallery in Edison Park. Her work can also be viewed at
