Jen focused seriously on ballet and modern dance throughout her childhood and adult life. She has a BA in Performance Art from the University of MD. She dabbled in visual art throughout her life, but has very little formal training. In May 2015 she took an on-line art class that awoke her creative nature, and propelled her into the world of two dimensional art. No stranger to discipline, she has dedicated herself to a demanding studio practice, and the creation of her business. In addition, Jen has an elementary teaching license, and has taught youth and adults in numerous settings for the last twenty years.
