New Website!


I am slowly resurfacing from years of illness, the past few years I was unable to share or even create art. I decided to make a fresh start instead of continuing with this blog. My new website is jennadecker.com – there you will find my portfolio, a new blog, and a new shop to buy original art (coming soon!)

If you followed me here, I hope you will join me there too! Thank you so much for the follows, likes, and comments over the years- I started this blog in April 2013 when I was fresh out of college and had planned on going to to grad school in a few months. Needless to say, plans changed when my health took a turn for the worse. My last blog post was in November 2015 when I posted this quote:

“If you’re any kind of artist, you make a miraculous journey, and you come back and make some statements in shapes and colors of where you were.”

-Romare Bearden

I hope that’s what I’ve been doing the past few years when I’ve been on hiatus from this blog and everything else. The only way I can wrap my head around years of  serious illness and isolation is to somehow hope it was worth something.

I hope you will continue to follow my “journey” and I  can keep showing you the shapes and colors I’ve found along the way!

Love, Jenna

My etsy shop, Musical Color Studio, is on temporary hiatus and obviously I have not been able to blog frequently, either! Having (multiple) chronic illness(es) is, simply put, difficult. My health has recently taken a turn for the worse and I am unable to keep up with everything. Even painting has taken a backseat for the time being as I try to cope with my current situation. Thanks to those who continue to follow me, I promise more is coming in the future, but I’m not sure when that will be…
