About the Artist

jennifer-garstang-1398470718-mediumI have always enjoyed drawing and painting, and took many classes on it from elementary through high school. I struggled, though, because I always tended to do just a bit too much — layer on too much colored pencil or graphite, make just a couple too many changes to the details of a piece, etc. So I thought that visual arts really weren’t in the cards for me professionally… until I discovered Photoshop and it’s beautiful, magical “undo” button. Since then, I’ve been hooked on digital painting!

I chose to name this site after my flagship digital piece – “My Dragon Ate My Homework” – because it so perfectly captures the flavor of my work. Nearly all of my paintings strive to evoke a sense of wonder and fun; of magic that dances right on the edge of our periphery as we go about our daily lives.

I hope you enjoy my fantasy world, and invite you to explore this site, check out the galleries, and keep in touch!
