Jennifer McHugh - WED PM instructor
California native, Jennifer McHugh, is an abstract artist who captures the moments, stories and nuances of the everyday, and brings them to life through a visual narrative. Her work is created intuitively, through many layers of acrylic paints, chalk, pencil, oil pastels, and other mixed media. Largely self-taught, Jennifer has explored many styles to help her evolve as an artist, but her work is always process-driven. Guided by spontaneity, she translates her inspiration without any idea of what the final product will be.
Jennifer creates in her backyard studio in San Diego, CA, where she lives with her husband and two children. Her work is sold in galleries and boutiques in San Diego & California, and hangs in homes all over the U.S. and overseas. She also teaches workshops in her studio, local venues and as part of an artist collective that works with hotels and large corporations.
