Jennifer Rutt

Afternoon Ti - oil on canvas

The Women Artists of Kauai warmly welcome our newest member, Jennifer Rutt!  She is mainly an oil painter, but has recently been experimenting with encaustics.  

Her Artist's Statement:  
 
Jennifer Rutt was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. She developed a love for art and was inspired by her grandmother, who was an amazing artist herself. Jennifer was drawn to Kauai for its rustic beauty, and decided to make it her home in 1995. Her fascination with nature ignited a spark in her creativity. Surrounded by vivid colors and natural wonders, she began to express herself through oil painting. Painting brings her joy and she hopes to share the same experience with those who make her artwork part of their home.
 
You can find her work on her website http://www.jenniferruttstudio.com or at her Etsy Gallery http://www.etsy.com/shop/JenniferRuttStudio
