About the Artist
Jennifer (Jenny) Scott is a self-taught artist, located in Chicago, Illinois. When a life-altering illness left her bedridden and searching for her lost identity, a childhood passion for art was reborn. Jenny uses acrylic paint on texture-prepped canvases. She uses the bumpy, uneven texture of the canvas as a metaphor for the ups and downs we each experience as we navigate our lives. The rugged surface instantly removes any ill-perceived thoughts of achieving perfection – relieving pressure and allowing added freedom for artistic expression. While Jenny likes to tackle an array of subject matter, much of her work is inspired by the beauty of Creation. Jennifer often attempts to personify elements of nature, as a way to share stories of human experience and emotion. She says, “From broken and lost; to purpose and identity – my work is a visual diary of reinventing myself and rebuilding my life.”
