BIOGRAPHY

  

Jennifer Slouha is a self-taught artist living in Holts Summit, Missouri. She was born in Solon, Iowa. After high school, she went on to work and to raise a family but found time to occasionally create artwork. At about the age of thirty, she realized there was a market for her artwork. She started creating artwork on river rocks and established her first LLC business selling her own river rock art at local venues in Tucson, Arizona. She began taking commissions that included pet portraits on river rocks and vehicle drawings on paper. She also sold her artwork in a couple of galleries in Arizona. After moving back to the Midwest and taking a few years off from creating artwork she decided to give it another try. She started a new business, Jennifer Slouha Fine Art LLC. 

Jennifer's preferred mediums are professional grade colored pencil, graphite pencil and acrylic paints. These media allow her to pursue a passion for realism and fine detail. The majority of her artwork tends to focus on details, specifically her graphite and colored pencil drawings. She has also worked in watercolor pencils, ink, charcoal, and oil paints in the past. She specializes in automotive artwork but also creates art in many other subjects.  

She is a general member of Best of Missouri Hands. She is also a member of the Columbia Art League in Columbia, Missouri and participates in the Community Exhibit Program where she exhibits her artwork throughout the city on a rotational basis. She has also been accepted into Capital Arts Gallery in Jefferson City, Missouri, the Art House Gallery of Fulton, Missouri, and the Lake Fine Art Academy & Galleria in Osage Beach, Missouri for representation.
