 Jennifer Vontz; Artist

  BACKGROUND

         My name is Jennifer Vontz and I have been drawing and creating most of my life. I painted my first mural at 18 and designed mylar balloons at 19 while attending college. God has blessed me with artistic talent and He changed the direction of my life two years ago so I now have the opportunity to actually create art and share that talent with others.

 

   I grew up in Sugar Land, Texas and now reside “down the road” in Richmond, Texas. I have a Bachelors of Art in Fine Art with a specialization in painting from Jersey City State College in New Jersey and a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Houston. I taught middle school art in Sugar Land for seven years from ’98 until ’05. I taught all media from ceramics, to painting, animation, to photography and anything in between.

      

God has a way of making His will known- I would still be teaching if I hadn’t become pregnant with twins (boys #3 and #4) in the fall of ‘04 and my carefully made plans changed drastically. I knew we couldn’t afford daycare for three little ones on a teacher’s salary (my second son wasn’t quite two at the time) so I quit teaching and began to devote my free time to creating anything and everything. I have a sense of peace and a joy that I have never known before. I am a part time, work at home mom to four boys, ages 2, 2, 4 and 13 and I couldn’t be happier.

I hope you enjoy seeing my work as much as I enjoyed creating it. Enjoy your visit and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Please feel free to e-mail or call me anytime.
