"It’s not about the art. It’s about how art illustrates lessons, emulates life, and provides a journey into self." - Jen
My upbringing, island travels, and love for teaching all contribute to my art style and direction. Nostalgia is my compass. There is much to learn about ourselves through mosaic-making. I aim to facilitate the same sense of self-reflection and self-awareness that I experience while in the “art flow.”
I taught junior high and high school English for over 12 years, but it was never the subject-matter that mattered to me. It’s always been the children. The innocent souls. I’ll always be a teacher. It is who I am and I’m committed to infusing creativity into the lives of others, especially into the lives of budding minds.
I've become passionate about developing DIY mosaic art kits or, as I like to call them, "Little Art Lessons in a Box." I include everything that is needed to make art (and often functional art such as drink coasters) and learn the basics of mosaic-making. One DIY kit can potentially teach someone everything they need to know to continue making their own creative mosaic art pieces.
The beautiful thing about making mosaics is that no two pieces are ever the same and every step builds upon the next. Every step and every little piece of glass is important for the whole. We can do no wrong while we enter into a thoughtful state of flow and introspection during the artistic process.
