This page is for expressing my thoughts about various ideas and concepts that relate to my work and my life in general. Allow me to indulge in some free-form thinking~ Jen F.

Instinct: the truth of the moment.

Artist: a person who creates. Every person is born with the ability to create and an imagination. Therefore, all people are artists. Some people nurture and explore this aspect of their humanity more than others. It’s my hope to inspire all people to cherish their innate creativity.

Landmark: “an event, discovery, or change marking an important stage or turning point in something.” or: “an object or feature of a landscape or town that is easily seen and recognized from a distance, especially one that enables someone to establish their location.”
I like this idea of something in the landscape- man-made or natural- that helps us place ourselves. This can happen both physically and psychologically, and the latter is of particular fascination to me. We define ourselves and our place in the world by our landmarks. Maybe that is why depicting place and space is so important to me, and the focus of my art.
