Jennifer Michelle Long was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1988. She moved to the bay area of California as a child and spent several years there. This period of her childhood was highly influenced by the natural beauty and light of the bay. She then moved to Salt Lake City where she grew and developed into her adulthood. Here, she feels that she was greatly influenced by what she calls the sometimes “oppressive energy” of this environment, thus creating a strong belief in true desire and thinking for oneself.
Art for her has been a means of understanding and communicating the world around her and presenting it from her perspective. She started taking art more seriously in high school, where she had received the highest ranking score on her AP art class portfolio. After graduating from Alta High, she began taking independent college art courses from Sydney Bowman, a Fine Arts Professor at BYU. In 2008, she received a scholarship to The Academy of Art University where she looked forward to continuing her artistic education and pursuing her passion for painting. It was also during this time that she was a featured artist in the IAO gallery of Salt Lake City.
After studying painting at the Academy for two and a half years, Jennifer decided to accelerate her independent ideas of art and began an internship with San Francisco-based artist Hilary Williams whom she worked with for several months. During her experience in the unique city of San Francisco, Jennifer was greatly inspired by the diverse and rich culture the city possessed and enriched by the abounding palette of different art forms and unified vision of humanity within the community.
Currently she is residing in Salt Lake City where she is focusing on various projects and fully rendering her ongoing artistic vision.
My paintings are my dance with imagery.
In my work I choose to express my own translations of spirit in our
I explore forms and metaphors that bridge the face of internal worlds
and how they are connected to the external worlds.
In our divinity and raw experience of being human, I am inspired to
fuse them in a world of paint.
Using elements of realism and abstraction and honoring our cosmic
truths, my paintings are windows into the sacred.
My work is dedicated to sharing insights that offer a new way of
seeing, being and feeling.
