Biography / Artist Statement - Jen Callahan

"Art makes my life even more wonderful than it already is"

My artistic talent has been nurtured since I was a young child. My mom was a studio watercolor artist, who introduced me to the arts in grade school.

As a teen I was in the Gifted Art Program as well as a College Scholarship program for high school students.

In 2000 I earned a degree in applied science which focused on graphic and CIS web design.

From 2000 to 2007 I continued my studies with the arts as well as opened a studio to sell, display, and teach art to children at Liberty Town Fine Arts Center in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

In 2007 I closed my studio and started displaying my paintings at indoor and outdoor art festivals. I enjoy the thrill of showing my work in new exciting places and currently show at festivals year round. I work from my new custom home studio in North Port, Florida.

I use water based paints and like to combine my painting technique between watercolor and acrylics as well as experiment with different painting surfaces and styles. My emotions come out with each painting and I tend to use colors that make me happy. Sometimes I disregard what is presented in real life and express it in a different way. Art is a way to share my personality with someone as they look at my paintings. One of art's rewards is knowing that others get joy from viewing my artwork.

I sincerely hope that people everywhere will enjoy viewing my artwork as much as I enjoy creating it.
