Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson, a Maryland based artist, has close ties to Howard County and Ellicott City in particular. An avid animal lover, Jennifer began her career as a watercolor painter with an emphasis on realistic nature scenes and surreal illustrations. Jennifer’s love of the natural world is evident in the use of flora and animals in her work. Jennifer studied watercolor painting with Brenda Kidera. She continued her visual arts education at the Baltimore School for the Arts with a concentration in painting.

After graduating in 2014, Jennifer continued to paint but was intrigued by the world of contemporary paper art. Inspired by the elaborate costume and art design of television shows such as Game of Thrones, Jennifer became interested in textile-based work, especially that of Jeff Nishinaka, creator of the Night King paper sculpture. Jennifer’s visit to Hillwood House Museum’s Pret a Papier exhibit served as additional inspiration and an introduction to “Pulp Fashion”, the art of Isabelle de Borchgrave.

Self-taught in cut paper art, Jennifer uses an X-acto knife and her imagination to craft delicate works in 2-D that display movement, texture and dimension akin to sculptural works. As she continues her exploration, Jennifer strives to create pieces that will demonstrate a finely-honed technique and be a source of delight to the viewer. Continuing motifs are foxes, wolves, delicate flowers and lace-like structures.

Jennifer has exhibited works across Maryland including: The Columbia Mall, The Baltimore School for the Arts Segal Gallery, BWI Airport, Howard County Department of Education, Howard County Center for the Arts, Center Stage, Hotel Brexton, XS Restaurant, Night Owl Gallery, Vintage Vault and Gallery, The ClayGround Studio and Gallery, and Mt Vernon Marketplace.

Her paper work “Night Fox” was the Juror’s Choice winner at Art Howard County 2017. Outside of her art career, Jennifer is a fan of the Nerdist podcast and is owned by a Jack Russell Terrier named Tyrion.

Dear Friends, TOMORROW, SUNDAY, 8 APRIL, 1-4PM, 2018, Opening Reception for Local Artists Stephanie Boyer & her daughter Andrea Sauer: “Realism and Abstraction: Two Generations of Art” at HorseSpirit Arts Gallery. Come enjoy their artwork along with that of the Gallery’s 45 other Local Artists - in the company of friends and fellow Art lovers. Festive beverages and desserts served

About the Artists:
Stephanie Boyer, inspired by the beauty of nature and everyday objects, enjoys painting her favorite things - seashells, sparkling blue glass, flowers, fruit and ocean vistas. Her detailed oil paintings create a sense of drama by using strong sunlight, shadows, reflective surfaces and vibrant colors.

Andrea Sauer, Stephanie Boyer’s daughter, paints primarily in watercolors with bold compositions and colors that are lush and unexpected. Andrea enjoys painting flowers, still life, children, and landscapes. More recently Andrea has moved towards creating mixed media pieces using a wide variety of materials.

This Mother-Daughter Art Show Runs from 8-to-22 April, 2018. I look forward to seeing you soon! Abundant kindness, Robin Holliday
