bio

 

Aspens quaking against a brilliant blue sky or scarlet poppies bursting from their pods inspire me to create works of art that express my whimsical nature. I take scenes from the environment and push them to become something beyond what I see to what I feel. I am not married to a medium as much as an idea that I capture, re-create, and release into the world.”

 

Fennell’s work is inspired by the love of the natural environment and female form. Designs, textures and colors found in nature appear throughout her mixed media canvases.  Each piece begins as an idea drawn onto the surface that comes alive as layers are added or scraped away and the texture and dimension appears.  She strives not to imitate nature, but to bring her whimsical sprit into the piece. Her work can be found in numerous private and public collections throughout the United States.

 

She received her Masters of Fine Art from Northern Illinois University in 1992 and Bachelor’s degree from University of S. Indiana in 1990. She now calls Colorado home along with her husband, two kids and a home full of art.
