Jennifer Love's Profile

About

ARTIST BIO:
I am a water media artist. I prefer traditional watercolor on cold press paper and generally paint compositions with a strong central focus using both wet-in-wet and dry-brush techniques.

I am inspired by nature, landscape, architecture, and beauty in all things and I try to translate my inspiration using bright, rich colors in my compositions.

ON ETSY:
I am a home-based artist and currently run all aspects of my art shop myself, with occasional packaging help from my husband. I conceptualize and create all of the paintings and photographs in my shop. I also personally print and make many of the notecards and prints in my shop as well.

ARTIST STATEMENT:
"Painting fills a void in my soul that is ever-present when I am not expressing myself in some creative way. All I need to do is look at the world around me to be awed by the beauty of creation, of the human form, of nature, of man-made structure.

Everything is an inspiration, from the fjords of Norway to the great cathedrals of Italy; from a sunset over the Great Salt Lake to a mountain of fresh powder at the top of a Rocky Mountain ski lift; from the joy of planting my flower garden and watching it grow to the peace I feel watching my child or my husband sleep.

I am inspired by the places I have traveled, by the uniqueness of the landscape in my home state, and by the people around me.

Artwork, like a person, should be in a constant state of evolution…always seeking for improvement and aiming for perfection. We may fall short of the goal, but there is always much to be learned from the journey. Any subject matter that I find inspiring or interesting is fair game.

For an artist, there are no boundaries. For me, creation is the search for self, and each new piece of artwork I create is a small piece of the puzzle that is me. In the end, if I am lucky, I will end up with a masterpiece."
