Jennifer Vitalia holds degrees in Fine Arts, Design, Photography and Visual Arts, She is to say the least very passionate about the Art industry. Her art background goes back to her youth, where she spent time learning to freehand draw under her grandmother’s teachings, who was an art school teacher. For nearly two decades after college, Jennifer Vitalia has been a professional artist. She has done everything from Photography to Fine Art to Interior Design to Furniture to Sculpting to Body Painting with each medium reaching awards.
Armed with several paint brushes, colored acrylics, oils, body paints, and large canvas, Jennifer began painting in an abstract style. She felt compelled to chase the visual forms of emotion believing in more depth of experience, rather than just producing an obvious interpretation. Her techniques of blending degrees of colors, pressure of brush strokes, incorporating few written words, and creating visual forms that are both existent and imaginative, seemed to come together in breathtaking pieces that hold you in front of the canvas fascinating your eyes and inspiring your thoughts. Though predominately painting in the abstract style, Jennifer also works her ideas into the art of photography, where she turns the human form into a moving canvas of expression & idea. Her camera work, primarily focuses on highlighting specific colors and the positioning of forms to produce striking abstract & vocal messages.
