Hello there! I’m Jennifer Rikkers
… artist, seeker and dreamer. Four very special people call me Mom. For as long as I can remember I felt the artist within but didn’t know how to express my creative voice. It wasn’t until choosing to leave my career as a social worker to focus on being a stay-at-home mother to my small children that the need to nurture my “artist self” became undeniable. Ever since, the creative within has eagerly emerged and has become an integral part of nurturing my soul. Much of how I walk in the world is honored and expressed with my creative voice as a painting emerges intuitively.
Painting intuitively allows the colors and the layers to inform the next mark, the next color as the composition evolves until the painting, in essence, feels complete. Working in a variety of medias: acrylic, mixed-media, encaustic, resin, feeds my curiosity and intuitive exploration. A painting may be a reflection of a season
in my life, an expression of my inner self or intended to evoke contemplation while sharing a message. It is my hope to share the expressive and healing qualities of art, how art is alive in my life and perhaps serve as a guide as you discover possibility and find your own creative voice. It is with immense gratitude that I share my work with you.
