JenWeaverArt's Profile



Bio
Jen Weaver is a watercolor artist who lives in Youngstown, Ohio with her loving husband and two kitties.

Jen discovered her artistic abilities in her 40’s, until then believing she didn’t have any talent. She grew up hating art class, always comparing her lopsided drawings and childish paintings to other students’ work. It didn’t come easily to her like other school subjects, so she never had any desire to pursue it. Instead, she focused on what she was good at: science and math. She received her Master’s degree in Organic Chemistry and went on to pursue a career in Analytical Chemistry. A second career at a Financial data and software company followed, filling her days with spreadsheets, data collection, problem-solving and meetings.

A few years ago, Jen started watching videos about modern calligraphy and watercolor on YouTube as a means of escape from the detailed technical challenges of her career. She was immediately fascinated. Not being able to help herself, she impulsively bought art some supplies and attempted a loose floral painting tutorial. To her complete surprise, it turned out beautifully. Over the next few years, she enjoyed following many online classes and tutorials, learning as much as she could to develop her skill and establish her style.

Now, Jen is inspired to paint all the pretty things around her, including her most favorite subjects: landscapes, seascapes, cloudscapes, flowers and other botanicals. Each day, she thanks the Lord for the beauty of His amazing creation and for gifting her with the ability to capture some of it in her paintings.
