Meet your instructor
Jenn Noble Shepherd, living and creating in Hazard, Kentucky is a proud Appalachian artist.
Jenn finds inspiration from living in and exploring the Southeastern Appalachian Mountains, which has influenced her creative style and process. She is also inspired and motivated by the many Appalachian artists who continue the work and teach the skills and techniques found in the region…the chair makers, quilters, potters and wood workers to name a few. She has a deep passion for helping keep these crafts alive. She specializes in mixed media painting, but equally enjoys basketmaking, quilting, wood carving and any craft she has the opportunity to learn.
Jenn has nearly ten years experience in teaching various mediums in the classroom and her community, and she has been creating art for most of her life. Her earliest memory of dreaming of an artists life was at the age of seven. Her work has been shown at the Mountain Arts Center, Appalachian Artisan Center, Appalshop, and is on the cover of two published books.
When people see Jenn’s work, her hope is that they remember the region in which she lives is full of magic and gifted makers, and that it’s important to make sure heritage continues to live through art.
