ARTISTS
Jennifer Blue Hands
Jennifer Blue Hands is a multi disciplinary artist with a BA in Painting and Drawing from IU Bloomington. She has traveled across the US, having lived in Montana, Washington D.C., Colorado, California, and Michigan. Currently, Jennifer resides in her home state of Indiana with her three children, six cats, a dog, and a snake.
As an artist, Jennifer Blue explores themes of nature, innocence, rebirth, and renewal, drawing inspiration from the transformative power of youth, spring, motherhood, fantasy, and solitude. Her work delves into the realm of inner child exploration, seeking healing from grief and complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD). Embracing the role of motherhood, she channels these experiences into her creations, carving a narrative of other worlds, resilience, hope, and growth. Through Jennifer's art, she aims to share the vibrant essence of youth and imagination offering a visual journey of self-discovery, and emotional healing. She has primarily been a painter, however, Jennifer has come to enjoy the process of finding images in puzzling together scraps of wood she finds around the shop she loves to frequent. Jennifer independently studies Art Therapy and Psychology, with a focus on a method she calls Draw, Trace, Color. She currently works as a fabricator at Whale Creek, Co. Jennifer is also a scenic painter and assists in light carpentry work at the Phoenix Theatre and occasionally IRT. In February 2024, she began her journey into the world of set design with the Southbank Theatre Company.

Jennifer Blue Hands is available for private bookings

Available most Saturdays 2-6pm, and upon request with advanced notice

I taught myself how to paint in 2023 and have been painting flowers daily to practice. This piece was inspired by the beautiful world God created and intended to bring happiness and joy. It is acrylic on canvas and also looks beautiful when illuminated under a blacklight!

Life is a series of probabilities one different choice and your decision could place you very different scenario. In May 2020 my apartment was broken into a person wielding a knife stabbed everyone. If I hadn?t been in the shower I?d probably have been dead instead of hurt. My partner now husband saved me that day. However my friends perished.

Title or Location: Memories of Bassano Del Grappa
A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.

The combination of birds and flowers are dedicated to the two women who were and always will be my heroes. My artist mother who left this earth when I was seven months old and the grandmother who sacrificed her time and energy to raise a very precocious little girl after having raised nine children of her own. For me birds symbolize heavens messengers and flowers symbolize heavens artwork. My grandmother loved birds and raised them with as much care as she raised and loved me. This 9X12

Title or Location: Fantasy get Away Located in Orange Virginia
The owner told me that she wanted something fun, relaxing, and beautiful to adorn her shed. She pointed out the she especially hated the electric meter. About 1/2 way across painting on the shed, she came out with ice tea and asked if I could also include the Blue Ridge Mountains. So, I made the building end (made a corner) and then added some blue ridge mountains off in the background. Finished product has feelings of Greece with Blue Ridge mountains, making it a true fantasy piece!
