Hello, I am a 28 year old artist who lives in Jamaica Plain, MA, which is a beautiful neighborhood in Boston. I am a multidisciplinary 2D artist, focusing in painting, printmaking and installation. My work can be seen on my website: www.jennhoule.com and blog: www.jennhoule.blogspot.com. In addition to making art, I teach art full-time in the Boston Public Schools system at the Warren-Prescott School which is a K-8 school in Charlestown, MA.
My current body of work focuses on North American wildlife and the cycles of energy in nature. My process involves a lot of research on different animals, including their behavior, diet and anatomy. I document this research in sketchbooks and playfully reorganize the information at this stage. In final pieces, I use watercolor and inks on paper, mylar and yupo paper. My work can currently be seen at the Artist and Craftsman Supply in Central Square, the Caladan Gallery (online) and Art at 12 in Fort Point. I have upcoming solo exhibits at Frame 301 in Montserrat College of Art and JP Art Market in Jamaica Plain.
In 2007, I received a BFA in painting from Massachusetts College of Art. My love of nature stems from my childhood growing up in Newton, N.H. and spending summers camping and hiking and winters skiing. I continue to travel to natural areas to rejuvenate, most recently Baxter State Park where I was inspired by watching moose. I also love to garden with my fantastic assistant Maxine, my cat.
