The 2017 Annual Art and Spirit Crawl: Friday, October 13th

Meet the Artists

FEATURED ARTIST: JENNI HOPFINGER

Business Host: Bilboa Brewing

My life as an artist began when I was very small, admiring my father’s artwork. His beautiful Christmas-time murals of mother and child were painted directly on the picture windows in my grandparents’, and our own, living rooms. They were life-size, vibrant with color, and thrilling.

My artwork is the product of my endless fascination with color, textures, shapes and patterns, and my experiments with the endless combinations of these ingredients. For many years now, my experiments are primarily with brush and paint on wood and glass. Wood provides the opportunity to explore combinations in 3D. On glass, I play with 2D combinations of colors and patterns. My color palette has many inspirations: travels to the Caribbean and Mexico, especially the underwater cacophony of vibrant sunlit colors dancing in the water which I experienced while scuba diving off coral reefs. The seasonal changes of Wisconsin’s landscape provide fascinating palettes as well.

Painting on glass began 25 years ago with my sister’s request for champagne flutes painted for each member of her wedding party. I spent an entire winter experimenting with various paints, tools and techniques. In the spring, my sister had her 14 champagne flutes, and I had a new and exciting medium to explore.

A fellow artist, my husband Paul keeps me company in our studio. When we are not spending our evenings and weekends creating, we can usually be found alongside each other’s booths at regional art fairs.

I have studied art in many forms through many venues; but find the best teacher is lots of time spent playing and experimenting, learning through trial and error how to use the tools and master the techniques. I create my work intending it to be enjoyed; the functional pieces to be used and enjoyed. I would like enjoyment to be a part of every person’s every day! I wish my artwork to enliven and brighten and give at least a bit of the joy that is a part of its creation.
