Last September I wrote about creating your own wall art in my post about Loving Your Home. Here is a series of multimedia art pieces recently created by Jen for her kitchen. All photos are Jen’s and used with her consent.
Jen is a young woman with a great enthusiasm for life and a willingness to learn, just thinking about her makes me smile. Inspired by another artist, she created her own art using paper and paint.
The larger pictures are 13-inches square and the smaller pieces 9-inches square.
There’s both a soothing simplicity and a subtle complexity to these works.
The small white leaves on the flowers in the vase are actually paper. I love the textural elements that give these pieces depth while maintaining the integrity of the design simplicity.
I love the way she’s featured each kitchen item in color in contrast to the black-and-white vase of flowers. It makes for a lovely balance, I think.
The constancy of the vase of flowers anchors the grouping.
Jen cut her own mats and framed the art pieces herself, useful (and less expensive) skills I need to learn.
I love the way Jen took an idea that resonated within to create something of beauty for her kitchen that reflects her own personality.
