ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jenna Conlin is a painter who is interested in depicting what it means to be a modern-day disciple. She is especially interested in the intersection of abstraction and realism. She feels she can best portray spiritual experiences where these visual languages meet. Her paintings do not aim to provide definitive answers but rather explore questions and experiences.

  Since graduating from BYU with a degree in the arts she continues to paint in her studio, aspiring to learn more about her Heavenly Parents and Jesus Christ. She currently lives and works in Louisiana with her husband and baby boy.
