About the Artist

JM AboutArtist 600x570

Jennifer Morrison is an Indiana-based botanical artist specializing in colored pencil drawing. When it came to discovering her aptitude for art, Jennifer was a bit of a late bloomer: it was around 2015 when she first picked up a set of colored pencils and learned to draw. She holds this as proof of our ability to find hidden talents at any stage of life. Inspired by seasonal botanicals, such as flowers in full bloom and ripe fruits bursting with color, Jennifer creates works of art highlighting the beauty in the simple things around us. Her love of drawing is equal only to her love of teaching. Through online tutorials, Jennifer shares her techniques and favorite tools with artists of all skill levels—including those starting out like she once did.
