Jennie is a warm-hearted and enthusiastic local artist who has dedicated her career to teaching and painting in the Jacksonville area. After studying Fine Arts at college, she and her husband opened Studios for Creating, a Visual Arts School. There, she and her staff taught watercolor and the basic art medium to students of all ages. She now has a working studio where she teaches watercolor for adults, children, and continues her watercolor painting.
She has sold her paintings and done workshops through the southeast. “I just love to see the light bulb go on when I am instructing. Watercolor has a reputation for being so hard to learn. I don’t agree. If you begin learning anything from step one it doesn’t have to be so hard. That is one of my favorite things to teach-----step one” Jennie believes art is important in our lives young and old alike. It is important for us to expand ourselves through visual art and experience life through the appreciation of art. Jennie’s favorite technique in watercolor is the negative painting and the intrigue it can add to a painting.
