Enter the World of Jen Sequel

A Traditional Portrait Artist

I am, an artist, an author, and an entertainment junkie.  I am curious about any- and everything about the world around me.  I am continually seeking to push myself daily and reach new limits with my art & writing.  I do not limit myself to one medium or style other than one of beauty and transformation.

Welcome to my world.

I never saw an ugly thing in my life; for let the form of an object be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful. ~John Constable
