I have such a fun Episode for you today! Jennifer and I became friends via Instagram a few years ago. I’m always fascinated by Abstract Artists because what they create is so out of my wheelhouse! I couldn’t wait to hear all about her process.
What I thought would be an interview about how she creates her art, turned into a very open and honest conversation about her journey of overcoming some real obstacles. Jennifer admits that high school had its challenges for a student with ADHD but that later in her art career she would use that as one of her greatest assets. At first she chose the path of becoming a hair stylist where she worked with an artist friend and mentor who encouraged her to pursue her art more seriously. She steadily grew her collectors while working at that job but it wasn't until the passing of her younger brother and his words of advice, when she finally decided to pursue her art full time.
We talk about her process, use of materials, and how she works on multiple projects at one time. She also shares how she sells her art which is very helpful advice. We talk about her successes of her art being featured on HGTV's 'Love It Or List It' and other well known media.
We also discuss the opening of her new studio and what that experience has been like for her. She has two very adorable little kitties I just had to know more about too!
And as if Jennifer wasn’t amazing enough, she is so generously offering 100% of the proceeds of the Sale of this Painting to the Louise Monforte Memorial Scholarships! The purchase of this one painting would almost be enough for an entire scholarship! I was literally moved to tears when she offered it!!!
I so hope you will enjoy this Episode with the beautiful, talented, generous, and kind Jennifer Flannigan!!
