New Website!

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

Wet Paint

banksyquotejennadecker

“Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal, a city where everybody could draw whatever they liked. Where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at a bus stop was never boring. A city that felt like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall – it’s wet.”   -Banksy
