Originally from the East Coast, and now living in Portland, OR, Jennifer Mercede’s primarily abstract paintings consist of free flow text, bright color fields, and energetic doodling.
She is inspired by funky color combinations, children’s art, graffiti and abstract expressionism. Her process is spontaneous and expressive. To quote Mercede, “I paint fast. I doodle. I paint stream of consciously. For me there are no mistakes in painting, & I like to think, there are no mistakes in life!”
