It’s happened again. We’ve turned over the calendar page to a new month. February is such a short & sweet month, isn’t it? It’s here and then over before we know it, but while it remains, it’s filled with Valentines and chocolates, hugs and kisses and cuddles. The work of this month’s Featured Artist Jenny Brown with her use of antique papers and ephemera seemed the perfect way to put just a little more love into the next 28 days!
Jenny collects antique papiers and books, which she methodically and meticulously weaves together to create these magical organisms that seem to float in the ether. Each small element is put into place just so, resulting in a delightfully real fictitious character on the page, like little Victorian nymphs.
To see more of Jenny Brown’s work, make sure you head over to her website. Jenny is opening two shows this month– she’ll be in the Enormous Tiny Art Show at Nahcotta in Portsmouth, NH and over here in the Northwest at Ghost Gallery in Seattle. If you’re in either area, please check out her work in person! You can also follow Jenny on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram ( her feed is so fun! ), and Pinterest. Four of Jenny’s pieces are gracing the Artsy Forager Facebook cover for the month AND I’ve compiled an album over there of the Jenny Brown’s I love the most.
