I Am Fine Art  

This new exhibit from Jennifer Van de Vooren just opened yesterday at cre8ery, and is easily one of the can’t miss collections of the summer. Celebrating the greatness of women through “big, bold, abstract art”, Van de Vooren says her show is “a tribute to all women for the amazing love, nurturing, devotion, creativity, and strength that come so naturally,” and that her art specifically “reflects these qualities in all the beautiful, messy layers that mirror a woman’s life.”
