Jennifer Slouha is a self-taught artist living in Holts Summit, Missouri. Her preferred mediums are professional-grade colored pencils, graphite pencils and acrylic paint. These media allow her to pursue a passion for realism and fine detail. Her process involves the use of rich tonality and perspective.
Jennifer starts with researching the subject and begins forming the composition. Then she creates a simple line drawing and begins building depth until the image takes form. Each pencil drawing can require anywhere from 30 to 100 hours to complete. Jennifer enjoys creating highly technical pieces and continually works on improving her skills. She specializes in commissioned photorealistic automotive artwork and pet portraits. She also creates art in many other subjects such as wildlife, people portraits, cityscapes, and landscapes.
She is currently a member of the Columbia Art League in Columbia, Missouri and participates in the Community Exhibit Program. She teaches colored pencil classes throughout Mid-Missouri at various locations. She has also been accepted into the following galleries in central Missouri: Lake Fine Art Academy & Galleria in Lake Ozark, Capital Arts Gallery in Jefferson City, the Art House Gallery of Fulton, and Mid-Missouri Arts Alliance in Ashland where she participated in their ArtBank program.
Her automotive artwork has been displayed by the Kansas City Automotive Museum in Olathe, Kansas and Fast Lane Classic Cars in Saint Charles, Missouri. Multiple pieces of her artwork have won awards and been internationally published numerous times. She was the sketch artist for an episode of the Travel Channel’s television series “The Dead Files” in 2019.
