About Jen Walls

 
 
  • Biography
    There is malarkey here.  And there.  And everywhere I look.

    I want to grab it all and paint it into whimsical girls, moody abstracts and soulful creatures.  The journey of my own existence, so serious and grown up, juxtapositions against this riot of color, texture and play​.   

    The studio is my kingdom, and sometimes the paintings let me reign.  On off days, there is a wild rumpus of characters and creatures bossing me around, and on those occasions there are abstracts - other worlds where I can paint alone while the studio kids chatter amongst themselves.

    In my work is experimentation, discipline, repetition, tenacity, intuition and exploration, along with paint, pen and paper.  Is there another way to create?  None that I know.

    My paintings live in collections across the United States, Europe and Canada.  Works are displayed in juried shows, galleries and festivals.  There are award ribbons hanging on my wall - enough to make me feel very lucky.  Little pieces of me live on in multiple publications, including several books and magazines. I've been the featured artist in many venues, and a three-time artist-in-residence at a gallery in Ireland.  My demos and workshops help others find their creative inner wild child, and I am delighted to give public talks on the business of art.

Biography

There is malarkey here.  And there.  And everywhere I look.

I want to grab it all and paint it into whimsical girls, moody abstracts and soulful creatures.  The journey of my own existence, so serious and grown up, juxtapositions against this riot of color, texture and play​.   

The studio is my kingdom, and sometimes the paintings let me reign.  On off days, there is a wild rumpus of characters and creatures bossing me around, and on those occasions there are abstracts - other worlds where I can paint alone while the studio kids chatter amongst themselves.

In my work is experimentation, discipline, repetition, tenacity, intuition and exploration, along with paint, pen and paper.  Is there another way to create?  None that I know.

My paintings live in collections across the United States, Europe and Canada.  Works are displayed in juried shows, galleries and festivals.  There are award ribbons hanging on my wall - enough to make me feel very lucky.  Little pieces of me live on in multiple publications, including several books and magazines. I've been the featured artist in many venues, and a three-time artist-in-residence at a gallery in Ireland.  My demos and workshops help others find their creative inner wild child, and I am delighted to give public talks on the business of art.
