Art from Jennifer Michelle Crawley (@jennifersart)

Jennifer Michelle Crawley, was born in Victoria, British Columbia in July of 1982.

“As a kid I was always drawing; people, cartoons, any image that would catch my eye I would draw. I used to watch my mom reproduce paintings and decorate the house with them. She would paint all of the Masters; Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Renoir, Degas, Picasso, Modigliani and others.

I remember painting a couple of paintings when I was 9 yrs old and not really being into it; I loved drawing.

Then when I was 10 I started graphing in my mom’s paintings for her and loosely drawing in the images.

When I was 21 I saw some painting realism that blew my mind and I wanted to copy it. So I did and absolutely fell in love with the entire process of painting. I paint my own images now usually, unless something catches my eye or I’m commissioned to do otherwise.”
