Jennifer Bloom at Met Vet through December
Jennifer Bloom comes from New York and was trained at the Rhode Island School of Design and happily also received a master's of fine art at U.C.L.A. She has been painting since she was 7 years old. She infuses a lot of New York attitude, panache, and hip style into her paintings. People have told her that her portraits remind them of painters from the 80's and that they are also very Hockney-esque in their approach.

"I enjoy the active meditation that happens while making art; the incredibly focused attention, being really present with what I’m doing, time seems to stand still. Each piece is the culmination of my life experiences; from the execution of the painting because of techniques I’ve learned, to the endless images I store in my brain and unconscious, to what I learn from observing the natural world and observing the nature of things...a moment defined in a constantly changing natural world."
