Holiday Art Cards - Jennifer Myhre
These holiday paintings by artist Jen Myhre are original works, created using multiple types of pastels and coloured pencils on a specialty fibrous paperboard called pastelmat.
Jen photographs all her own artworks and digitally edits as needed, to curate the colours as close to the original as possible to recreate as prints. She also prints all her own works (minus postcards) using her lab quality professional art/photo printer on archival, acid-free photo paper.
Jen is a self-taught artists, who just recently discovered her natural talent to create using multiple mediums during Covid lockdowns. She has since left her career as a weld inspector in oil and gas to pursue her new found passion in art!
