hello, i am jennifer. i am an artist living in rural nebraska and am surrounded by gravel roads, trees, fresh air, peace and quiet. art has been a lifelong passion of mine; i have been blessed to know since i was young that art is the gift God granted me for this journey. i was also blessed by supportive and encouraging parents; growing up, i could draw, paint and create until my heart was content.
my husband and i are living what i like to think of as our "plan b". shortly after we married, doctors discovered my husband had a giant brain aneurysm. the hospital became our second home. a nearly thirteen hour brain surgery saved him from the aneurysm. all of this was completely life changing. we saw our plans of a career long military life all go away when he was then retired from the army. so we moved back home to nebraska for 'plan b'.
i started studiojru as a way to work from home and be able to help my husband with his needs. it was also a special way to share this gift of art that God has blessed me with. i started by selling paintings and crosses at art and craft shows in the local area. i dove into the online world of selling on artfire as a way to start selling prints of my work. i opened my own shop here in 2015, offering inspiring art prints, crosses and original paintings.
faith is a big part of my life and my art; i find it incredibly powerful and encouraging to see God’s word, faithfulness and love reflected creatively and beautifully in my home. my belongings need to be meaningful - not only for my family, but for anyone coming into our home - bringing our thoughts to Him.
