Raleigh artist, Jenn Hales is an environmentally conscious artist who does both commercial art (graphic design) as well as fine art. Wonderfully appealing paintings with imagination and beautiful colors and expression.

White Flour rhymes, and tells “the funny and inspiring story of the day that the Ku Klux Klan met the Coup Clutz Clowns, who offered a whimsical and wise retort to their racist rally. The poem that provides the text for the book was inspired by true events in Knoxville, TN in 2007.” (Quote from David LaMotte’s site.)
The original art for the book is available for sale in sets of two. The paintings on birch wood display a beautiful effect with the grain of the wood under the blue sky pictured here. The book, White Flour, is on the table.
Patina by Jenn Hales has original paintings, giclees in various sizes, posters, cards and post cards, as well as a wonderful assortment of visually interesting objects from a very large light bulb, to a feather collection next to some particularly dramatic thorns. She had decorated the walls with thin strips of wood that twisted like a ribbon garland.
What a delightful discovery. Beautiful paintings, getting to meet the artist – thanks to Sherri of the Gaille Collection who took us outside to meet Jenn where she was supervising an outdoor art project.
