An inherent passion of Jenan’s since childhood, her painting flourished after a series of life-changing events, enabling her to tap into the intuitive process behind the brush. She attended The Fine Arts Center in Greenville, South Carolina and under the mentorship of the talented Jim Campbell, first experienced the beautiful beginnings of meditative creation.
Mr. Campbell was a key influencer for her that relayed the message of art meeting the soul’s readiness and willingness to discover the true beauty within one’s work.
Throughout her travels, Jenan often found inspiration in her natural surroundings which governed many of her earlier works. She spent her summers creating art programs for elementary school youths and sharing with them her passion for the brush.
Drawn to the calming yet powerful sustaining life force of water, Jenan finds inspiration from it and believes it is universally inherent to all living beings. Primarily working in acrylic paint and oil pastels, Jenan’s recent body of work is strongly influenced by the surrounding salt marshes and lovely florals along the South Carolina coast.
Her work is heavily textured and the rich vibrancy of her emotional pieces are felt through beautiful colors and lavish layers.
She resides in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina with her daughter Isla, and mini doodle, Goji.
