I'm an abstract realist artist, painting instructor and handmade shop + gallery owner based in Atlanta, GA. My studio is nestled in the terrace level of my mid-century modern house built in 1955.
Painting takes me to magical places, usually conjuring a story. I love to paint the wild nature around me and get lost in the process.
My paintings have abstract beginnings, sometimes with a loose charcoal drawing or translucent layers of acrylic or watercolor. I embrace playfulness and joy in my practice with the intention of creating a sense of wonder for my viewers.
I'm interested in the creatures of the forest where ethereal and magical experiences exist. My animal collections consist of studying their vulnerability and our energy connections to living together on this earth. No matter what the subject, I like to take on the narrative, sometimes conjuring a bit of nostalgia, and always sprinkled with a bit of magic.
Jen Singh received a BFA from Kendall College of Art & Design (KCAD) in Grand Rapids, MI. My journey as an artist began in freelance illustration, exhibit and graphic design and art direction. My work has been shown in Atlanta, Austin, Raleigh, NC, Encino, CA and Holland, MI.
In 2014, I partnered with another creative and opened a “brick and mortar” boutique and art gallery, Garage Door Studio. I currently lead painting workshops, curate the gallery and mentor emerging artists.
ABOUT THE ART MINISTRY
The Art Ministry is about providing emerging artists a venue to showcase their work through monthly exhibits in our gallery. Over the years, we have exhibited many parishioners work including painting, photography and mixed media, as well as work by many other local artists. God’s bounty of creation is shared through these diverse and changing exhibits that also include art from Emmaus House and Holy Comforter, art related to the church calendar and visual supports for Adult Education programs. In the case of diocesan groups, they benefit by receiving 100% of any sales. By exhibiting their creative work, other artists receive more exposure and opportunity for sales. Our parish benefits by having interesting work that enhances our space and by retaining 25% of any sales.
The work of the ministry includes:
finding and scheduling the artists
installing their work in our gallery
introducing the artist through articles in The Epiphany Star
accounting of sales.
At the end of each calendar year, annual profits are distributed toward needs (mostly with a visual component) in the parish as determined by the committee and the Rector. In the past Art Ministry profits have gone to Vacation Bible School, Outreach, new vestments for our clergy and a wireless microphone system for the church.
