About the Cover Artist
Jennifer Rocco Stone
Jennifer Rocco Stone, this month’s cover artist, was born in New York. After 29 years, her life’s journey took her to New Jersey for a time, then Massachusetts and most recently, landed her in Bluffton, S.C.
Jennifer’s career in art began with her Bachelor of Arts Degree and Teacher Certification from William Paterson University in Wayne, N.J. For more than 20 years, Jennifer followed her lifelong passion—teaching art to children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Her favorite quote by Picasso says, “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Her teaching was deeply founded, as she helped give students the same inspiration that launched her love for art in fourth grade as a student herself, when she won an art contest with a piece her teacher titled “Jennifer’s Jungle.” While following her dream of teaching, she continued taking night classes at Montclair University in Montclair, N.J. to pursue a Masters of Art Degree.
