About the Art

What the artist saysMy mixed media and gestural forms reflect a period of personal perseverance. I use my artistic practice as motivation to chase my dreams while simultaneously speaking to myself with compassion and understanding.
Why we like itJen’s style is one of juxtapositions: hard lines compliment billowing pools of paint, a broad palette, and diverse materials work together to create a balanced and cohesive composition.
Where we hang itThese larger canvases can stand on their own but hang this one where its abundant details can be fully appreciated.

About the Artist

Jen Sanders
Saint Louis native and self-taught artist Jen Sanders has been exploring her creativity in painting for several years. By day, she works in the field of design as a User Experience designer and although she flexes her creative muscles in her day job, software design can be bound by the limitations of the company stakeholders and the users. For this reason, Jen is drawn to the limitless creativity of abstract expressionism. She considers herself a “maker”, specifically drawn to painting. Her evolution into abstract art allows her to gain new experiences and explore her creativity - approaching every blank canvas with optimism and excitement. The range of her talent and willingness to try new things is continuously evolving and expanding up in every new painting.

““Winging it” is what leads me to finish a painting - a splatter of some hope, faith and a whole lot of faking it.”
