Artist of the Day: Jennifer Skoropowski

Jennifer Skoropowski (a.k.a. Jenn Ski) is a Somerville, Massachusetts based artist who makes one-of-a-kind hand-painted panels with paper and acrylic, and giclée prints of her digital art. She received a B.A. in Graphic Design from the University of Massachusetts, and worked for years as a graphic designer. This year, though, she waded into trepid waters by dedicating herself full-time to getting her website and shop off the ground and running. She also has an Etsy shop and keeps up with her own blog, which showcases her interest in all things retro and modern.


Jenn's artwork, which for the most part involves an abstract series of orbs, spheres, and other irregular shapes in somewhat subdued tones, is undeniably and admittedly retro. Not surprisingly, Jenn claims to have "a passion for modern and mid-20th century art and design." What I find interesting about her work is that in spite of the asymmetry of her shapes, her work is overwhelmingly smooth, restrained, and polished. It makes you wonder why she chooses to place one lone dot just slightly off-center.
