Jen has been an artist all her life, and studied visual arts in several cities in the United States before embarking on a palette-inspiring five years abroad. Those years were spent running a bed and breakfast in the lush tropical colors in Jamaica and then enjoying the incomparable sunlight of the French Riviera. Jen now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a certificate in painting from the UC Berkeley Department of Fine Arts and is an international seller of her designs. She works in acrylics, often inspired by the vibrant light and color that she captures while she has her camera in hand enjoying outdoor activities, like hiking, when she is not in her studio.
