Jennifer C. Pierstroff - Artist
Jennifer Pierstorff has a unique combination of blending medical and pharmaceutical art with botanical and abstract art. She has been showing art all over the New England area for over twenty years. Jennifer moved to Charlotte, NC with her husband in 2013. She has focused on creating new art since moving here and is beginning to emerge onto the Charlotte art scene.
While attending University of Massachusetts, a car accident changed her life. After years of suffering through multiple medical issues, she wanted to express herself through art. Many of her projects have focused on dealing with medical issues by seeing the beauty of our internal systems as art, and pairing them with more traditionally beautiful objects such as flowers.
After the car accident, while recovering from major eye surgery, Jennifer took a break from college to live in Hawaii. The beauty of the Hawaiian landscape and flowers helped in her healing process and provided constant inspiration. She has tried to bring the healing power of a single flower to others in her unique way of drawing and painting.
Jennifer moved to Vermont in 2003, and completed her Studio Art degree at University of Vermont. Her favorite mediums include acrylic, water color, pen & ink, sculpture, specifically fabric and wire work, collage, and some crafts such as jewelry design and card making. Even though her health continues to be a daily struggle, she focuses on the beauty of the world around her. Jennifer strives to keep her art alive despite the circumstances that are thrown her way. Art has saved her life in many ways, and continues to do so every day.
