||ARTIST SPOTLIGHT|| At CRAFTED we are privileged to work with great local artists – each with amazing talents and interesting stories that we plan to share on this page from time to time. Our hope is that their stories will encourage you & that you’ll then be inspired to chase your own dreams. Scroll to see behind the scenes and keep reading to hear the story of our friend Jennifer Upton!
Hey, I’m Jennifer, an Atlanta based artist, and photographer. It’s taken me years to perfect my process, and I feel lucky to see pieces of my life’s biggest relationships within my work every day. As the daughter of a construction man and the wife of a builder, the remnants of construction projects, like sheet metal and wood, have always been a facet of my life. The day I realized I could make them part of my artistic process, something in the universe aligned.
I won’t get into all the nitty-gritty details of the process here, but I will say I love how the whole thing, from digital photo file to finished pieces, becomes a soothing rhythm that helps build the story the final piece tells.
If you’re looking for just another graphic print, this isn’t your place. But if you’re looking for a unique, customizable photographic story told in a new way, or a moment captured that speaks to you deeply, I’m happy to offer that. Whether you are interested in a piece created with my own photography or want to create a custom gift using your photos or the photos of a loved one, my process can get you there, and leave you with something special on more levels than one.
Let’s listen to those whispers
