I make digital art, watercolour illustrations and acrylic paintings.
Mainly I focus on children’s illustrations, colourful nature paintings and fantasy drawings.
Yes, if you feel my art style is suitable for your project, contact me at jennlooped @ gmail.com and let’s talk about it! Please describe your project or commission painting so we can start a dialogue about if I’m what you’re looking for. It’s as important for me as it is for you that we’re a good fit for each other, particularly if it’s a bigger project. I try to go by industry standard prices but it’s negotiable.
I was born 1980 and have a colourful history with university studies in religion, philosophy, Asia studies, gender studies and literature.
I’ve worked in an ice cream factory, enjoyed gardening for the city and currently I’m working part time at a daycare center. The kids are marvelous!
Interests include creating an indoor jungle, living the hippie life with green shakes and crystals, muscle training, creative writing and trying to be funny on Twitter.
I was born in Finland, which is part of the EU, but I consider myself more a world citizen than a nation-bound one. I live in the city of Turku, which is the Christmas capital of Finland and it was the European Capital of Culture in 2011.
Why Jennloop instead of Jennifer? Thinking in looping ways like a roller coaster and twirling about is my kind of thing. And my last name Lindroos could sort of be shortened to Loop, right?
I’ve wanted to be an artist since I was a kid but there’s been a lot of hesitation on the way. Growing up was tough, I’ve fought depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Time was needed to put myself back together again. Currently I’m figuring out how to live well and make lots of art while also being chronically ill with fibromyalgia. It’s teaching me a lot about living in balance and prioritizing tasks.
One of my main goals is to have a strong enough business to be able to give away money to charities to ease human suffering and to offset my carbon footprint by giving directly to programs that help the environment.
When I paint I go into a state of mind that’s like being in a different world. Time often disappears and the painting rarely turns out the way I expected it to, which is such fun! I like to let the paintings tell their own stories, they grow into who they want to be and I’m just the person holding the paint brush. I hope you’re enjoying discovering the paintings with me too.
