Creating art that makes her and others happy is this week's Artist Spotlight featured artist Jennifer Bigger's passion. Get to know this creative momma better and get inspired.
What are three interesting facts about yourself?
Here are some interesting facts about me:
I am a mother of twins boys, I work in Special Services, and I like dunking Maria cookies in my coffee.
What inspired you to make what you did with @versachalk?
A lot of families request milestone boards that are fun, vibrant, and capture their child's personality along with their party or birthday theme. VersaChalk offers various color options. I can always count on their markers to help me create pieces that will stand out at an event.
What’s your artistic process like? Are there any routines you stick to in order to stay/get inspired?
I try to only work on non-porous boards when working with VersaChalk. The tip of the markers glides smoothly on a flat surface, and it makes it easier to blend colors.
I do not have a formal process, but I am big on color balance and formatting. I make sure the pieces are fun and bold, but that they are also eye friendly.
What makes good art?
All art is good art as long as it is authentic and made with love.
How long did it take for you to get “good” at it?
I'm still trying to perfect my craft, but I felt comfortable with sharing my work when I noticed how much joy it brought to others.
Words of advice for up and coming artists?
Art is very therapeutic and it has brought balance to my life. So, create art that makes you happy, and if it brings joy to others as well, then that's a plus.
