This month I wanted to share with all of you more about myself. It is my Birthday Month. And due to what is going on lately in the world I've been very quiet lately. I also wanted to take this time to remind myself and refresh my memories as to why I am an artist and why I love to share my art with the world.
I am so happy to see you are coming along with me in this art adventure that is Jennifer Sher Art.
My artist statement:
"I am Jennifer Sher, a Mixed Media artist who loves to work with Paperclay. I create these hand-crafted art dolls in my home studio, I do my best to give each art doll a unique personality and embellishments. The moment I discovered Paperclay my art journey changed completely. For me. there’s something magical about sculpting, molding the clay and being amazed with what is revealed. My intention when creating these lovely handcrafted art dolls is to fill them with love and serenity so that's the energy they will transpire to the place they end up. Bringing a beautiful healing and uplifting vibration to many places, one sculpture at a time. ♥️ I also love to draw & paint whimsical portraits and incorporate them into many mediums."
Jennifer Sher Art is a sustainable brand that uses recycled materials in every handmade sculpture. Founded in January 2019, sales are generated through Shopify, pop-up shops and craft fairs.
Ok, let's dive in and let me share a bit more about myself:
My name is Jennifer Sher, I was born in Guatemala but moved to California in my teens, I am a mother of three beautiful daughters and I live in Santa Clarita, CA with my dear husband, my girls and my three cats. I’m a mixed media artists and sculptor. I am also a full-time accountant. But on my off time I do art. When I discovered Mixed Media ART in Sept 2015, I was blown away with this type of art and what you could do by learning how to create it. In April 2016 I discovered Paperclay and it totally changed my art journey. I love to see my art in 3D.
Now that I started my own small ART business, my vision is to share how to live an inspired creative life, to actively engage and live each day with purpose and intent. To choose to surround myself with positive people and influences. Live my life through sharing my journey with Mixed Media Art and inspire others to do/start their journey. I love working with Paperclay and I create sculptures that I hope to fill them with love and serenity so that's the energy they will transmit to the place they end up. Bringing a beautiful healing and uplifting vibration to homes. Hoping that customers will love looking at them in their sacred spaces and holding them close to their heart.
I always try to remind myself of these values when it comes to my small ART business, even thought sometimes it is not easy. I'm sure you could relate:
-Believing in myself
-Creating every day and inspiring others to do so
-Taking time to do the things I love ♥
-Embracing new experiences
I get inspired by learning from previous famous artists, such as Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, Picasso, etc. I am also inspired by all the different people I’ve met thru the online art community. My artsy friends are an inspiration for me to continue pursuing what I love.
I want to be the best wife, the best mom and more than anything happy with something of my own. I own my ART, it’s a window through my soul, creativity and mind. Something I could say “Yes” I created that with my own hands.
I want to teach others that no matter what we go through life we could overcome obstacles and succeed. Keep faith, keep love and keep believing in oneself. Being creative heals the heart and the mind. ♥️
I enjoy living a creative, healthy lifestyle, making every second in every day really count. Feel productive and nourish my relationship with my loved ones, my friends and my peeps (artsy people). Being positive, empowering one another and being authentic.
One of my favorite quotes:
Creativity takes courage – Henri Matisse
