Jeni Nelson

After receiving a B.A. in Fine Art from George Fox University in Oregon, Jeni spent four years living in France working on her art and being influenced by French design sensibilities and the lovely days spent in her the brightly-lit covered balcony that was her art studio above a boulangerie. Back in the Seattle area she has been pursuing photography and floral design, but has also been expanding her mixed-media art. In speaking about her current collage series, Jeni says, “I love detail and pretty things, and of course I will never forget my shaping experiences in France. You will see these loves represented in my work.”
