Jenny Laden

This is my favorite artist of the moment — Jenny Laden. Sometimes it’s refreshing to see someone work so well with the simplest of mediums: pencil and paper. What I find most intriguing about her works are the hairstyles on each of the women she sketches and/or paints because they create a world of their own. I’ve always thought about making something similar but it was always one of those things that stay as an idea in the back of my head. One of those Why Didn’t I Do That? moments. Simple, yet very effective art here and hopefully she will make plans to do some kind of showing here in Southern California.


The last image is a result of oils and goldleafs on wood. As you can see, just amazing craftsmanship in creating beauty out of the ordinary. Check out her website for more wonderful pieces of work.
