About the Artist - Education and Selected Gallery and Exhibition

For now, I'm focusing on my walk with the Lord, my marriage, keeping my horse healthy, enjoying life, and making new artworks.  It's been years since I've actually enjoyed art, so at this time I will be focusing on techniques, adding feel and emotion, and striving to put more "heart" into my artworks.  So, this "selected gallery and exhibition" page will be static for a while, but that's okay.  I feel that better artworks will come from this decision.

About the Artist:

horse artist, equine artist, PSSM horse
Since starting my art business in 2004, I have been on a roller coaster ride that's taken me from art, to house flipping, to legal assistant, to horse trainer, and a full 180* back to my artworks.

I'm thankful to get back to my art, and also for the life experiences I've gained.

Things in life that matter the most!  Jen, husband Jared, and Jax
