"A little over a year ago I introduced you to Jennifer Brickey in a Mother's Day piece. If you haven't read it I encourage you to. Especially if you are a mother. It is an encouraging spread full of love and artistry.
Anyway, I am really excited to share more of Jennifer's work with you all. I have mostly seen her work online yet even still I am drawn in for minutes on end. Sitting on my couch staring at my computer screen, probably causing early blindness, trying to soak in all of the intricacies of Jennifer's work. Tonight will be the first night of about a month-long exhibit in the Emporium. So stoked to see more of her work in person.
In addition to creating her own body of work, Jennifer also trains young artists on a day-to-day basis working at Pellissippi State and with the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies. She is just returning from Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin where she taught Drawing I and II. Next year she plans to direct the Italy program. Sign me up!! There aren't many days that I find myself saying I want to be a student again but I would love for Jennifer to be my professor especially if it means I can travel with her wherever. "
