About This Blog

Jennifer Addotta is a doodler at heart. As a child, the margins of her notebooks and schoolwork were often filled with inky abstract shapes. Filling entire pages with curving abstract line art was (and still is) a favorite way to spend her time. Her traditional drawings, created with ink and Prismacolor Markers, are both vivid and vivacious. Her digital work is a further exploration of line and color.

Born near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Jennifer grew up encouraged in her artistic abilities. From an early age, Jennifer  was exposed to sewing and fabric by her mother who passed on her knowledge as an accomplished seamstress and quilter. Young Jennifer was not that enthusiastic about sewing, but eventually came to appreciate having been given those same skills

Jennifer attended West Virginia Wesleyan College in 1987 set on a major of fine arts. In her junior year, she switched her major to fashion merchandising, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in this field. Her favorite class out of that curriculum was textiles.

After taking time off to raise a family, Jennifer discovered Adobe Photoshop and knew right away that this was another medium with which she had to become involved. Self taught in this program, Jennifer returned to her roots in fiber arts by designing fabric and repeating designs. She alternates between digital and traditional art.

Currently she resides in York, PA where she draws and designs.
