Homelessness is an epidemic.

In the decade since the onset of the Great Recession, more people have lost their jobs, health benefits, and homes. According to End Homelessness, more than half a million people across the United States do not have homes due to a rise in poverty, and the inflation of housing as well as living expenses. 

The organization, HomeFront, has taken a step to address and raise awareness about this rampant issue that has devastated those stricken with poverty, through their annual Benefit and art fair, ArtJam. Together, at ArtJam, HomeFront and participating artists use their creative talent to provide shelter, resources, and supplies to the homeless. Being a fundraiser for ArtSpace, a remedial program that gives inspiration and direction to those in need by offering support and a means of encouragement.

Jenn is a painter! Mostly she's an oil painter, though she's been known to use just about any medium available at a given moment.

She Loves to paint. It's pretty much all she wants to do.
Shes Loves to paint the world and the beautiful things in it — 
and she Loves that people really Love her paintings of our beautiful world and the beautiful things in it!

There is nothing really special about Jenn, she's just painter who paints... just about anything, just about all the time. 

P.S. She's a bit of a formalist — her world is made up of line, color, shape, form, structure, composition and plasticity. And, while she paint from observation, the subject of the painting is not her objective. The process of painting is her objective — the process of how to best use the medium, often oil paint, to create and subjugate form on the two dimensional surface of the canvas.

As my concern for our planet grows daily, I make art to express this, in the beautiful, mysterious language of abstraction. For the last 6 years I have been painting about our climate crisis in a series on rising waters, rain, birds, coral, forests and lost ice. I show both the beauty and desecration of our environment. I convey feeling through the use of color and movement.

Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.
