hello... i am jennifer. i am an artist living in rural nebraska - 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 was the gift God granted me for this journey. i was also blessed by supportive and encouraging parents. growing up, i could draw and 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 were married, doctors discovered my husband had a giant brain aneurysm. the hospital became our 2nd home. a nearly 13 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, being 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/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 things need to be meaningful. not only for my family, but for anyone coming into our home. bringing our thoughts to Him.
