Originally from Austin, Texas, Jennie’s inherent nature is to create community — often hosting friends at her home. She sees art, too, as a form of kinship or hospitality, not expressing her own tastes, but pairing pure colors with the stories of others.

Meet Jennie Lou

For the last several weeks, I have been working on a really unique piece embodying “hope” for St. Peter’s Church in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina (the church I attended when I lived in SC several years ago). The final piece will be revealed in the coming weeks!

“As I painted, I began to wonder if perhaps the world’s ways have lulled us to sleep, and we have become ignorant to the beauty and magnificent signs of hope God has strategically placed all around us. In the simple words of C.S. Lewis, ‘You understand sleep when you are awake, not when you are sleeping.’ “
