Jhenna Quinn Lewis says, “art is my way of communication and expression. It has been a driving force in me and my great love since childhood. From my earliest memories I have had this inherent fascination to express what I saw and to translate it. While my mediums have changed, I still endeavor to capture a wondrous glimpse of a moment held in time and to share it with the viewer.
I am drawn to simplicity of color, style, and composition. My inspiration comes from the Japanese masters. In college, I took courses on the Japanese Tea Ceremony and the art of flower arrangement. It is there I discovered the tenets of wabi-sabi, the adherence to beauty in the imperfect, the impermanent, and in austerity. I remove all that is unnecessary in my compositions and exercise restraint and simplicity. I invite the viewer to slow down, be patient and look, paying attention to all the necessary details. I believe this is why my works impart a meditative feeling.”
