After years of designing on the computer, Jennifer picked up a paintbrush after a long hiatus to create holiday gifts for friends. She found that this process of making art had been missing from her life, and she launched on a tour of mixed media exploration. She uses pen and ink, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media collage. She offers art classes for all ages at her studio, and at libraries and community centers in Lake County, IL.
