"A moment in time captured by the soul"

 

Jennifer Hahn Squires was born in Bronxville, NY in 1964 and grew up in Sandy Springs, GA. 

She graduated from Auburn University '87 with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art (BFA). Her original career path was with high-tech corporations, including British Telecom, MCI Telecommunications Corporation, Digital Communications Associates, Brock Control Systems, Cohn & Wolfe, Genigraphics, Hermes Europe Railtel, Spectragrafika, and Samsung. "I was blessed to be able to mesh the worlds of fine art and computers as a computer illustrator, but with paint brush in hand late at night it was time to do what I truly love: paint."

Since 2000, Jennifer has been painting out of her home studio in Roswell, GA. Her work has evolved over the years, the underlying continuum being gestural figures. Look for her upcoming series in late 2016 focused on her yoga passion. 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

"I paint from internal expression and memory, alternately building and excavating mediums that accumulate into rich surfaces with opaque and transparent passages, often creating 'windows' into past layers. I work until the paintings have acquired an essence of time, depth, presence and, most importantly, grace. A painting is not finished until it provokes a strong emotion; until paint becomes heart and spirit on the canvas".
