Jen McKinney is an contemporary landscape painter with a deep love for the landscapes of the American South. Working in a variety of mediums, including ink, watercolors, soft pastels, and acrylics, Jen explores themes of nature, exploration, and Southern culture in her work. Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Jen graduated from Union University in 2007 with a B.A. in Ethics and a minor in Art and began travelling the world with her husband, the historian.
