Jennifer H. Pepin
Born in 1977 in San Francisco to an attorney and ballerina, Jennifer grew up with both the analytic and creative influences of her parent’s careers. When it came to work, she focused attention on her analytic side but always kept creative hobbies: playing the piano, making jewelry and other crafts.
However, it wasn’t until her 28th birthday when a friend gave her a small art set that she discovered her true passion. Since then she has been painting with acrylic. Self-taught Jennifer is driven by mood and inspired by nature. Her art experiments with brush strokes and color blending.
Jennifer currently resides in Portland, OR and recently opened J. Pepin Art Gallery in the Pearl district. Her gallery features artists who are reframing the perception of mental illness by sharing their creative journey and how having a mental illness plays a role.
