Jen Norton was born in Belmont, CA, but migrated a little east every few years during childhood and now considers herself from Phoenix, AZ. Jen returned to the Bay Area for college, graduating in 1987 from Santa Clara University where she earned a Bachelors degree in Fine Art, with a Minor in Business.

Painfully shy as a child, Jen was unable to communicate with anyone outside her family except through drawing. Visual language was her first language and she never lost her passion for its ability to communicate for her. There was never a day she “decided” to become an artist. For Jen, there was just no other way to be.

After graduating from college, Jen worked as a graphic designer for ten years before pursuing painting. Her subject matter is found in telling stories of home, revealing the Jesuit principals of finding God in the everyday and mundane that were instilled in her education.

Jen works in acrylic, using expressive color, texture and pattern to reveal the sublime in the ordinary. She begins each painting with underlying layers of intense hues and expressive brushwork, which gradually become hidden from view as the painting progresses. These underlying layers are important to the depth of the final work, just as years of spiritual growth are to a well-rounded soul. Jen seeks to develop order and beauty from underlying chaos. Jen believes that through art, one can hear the whisper of a mighty Creator. Her intention is that her art may cause you to pause and listen.
