“I guess, in some ways, every painting I create is me….some sort of self-portrait in a way. The women (characters) in my paintings have something to say about love, loss, and life. They are my voice.” – Jennifer Yoswa
Visual storyteller and this month’s cover artist, Jennifer Yoswa, has a vibrant personality as bright as her colorful artwork. A self-taught oil painter, Jennifer’s art journey has been anything but ordinary. While in her late 30s, she began to feel something was missing, a piece of herself. So, surprisingly she began to get creative with everything she could think of when she put charcoal to paper. She began to study the play of light on objects, shadows, and it all seemed to feel right. From there she worked up the courage to put paint to canvas, and the rest, well, that’s history. It was a love affair that’s still going strong today.
