The Art of Jeniffer Stapher-Thomas
1.) Hand of Fate
2.) Adam and Eve
3.) Tribute to Aesop
Jennifer Stapher-Thomas was born in El Paso, Texas to an Army family and was privileged to travel the USA, Asia and Europe. She graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a Bachelors of Science of Education and a minor in Art. She has taught for twenty years and has been painting for over thirty.
Stapher-Thomas’ stylistic influences range from Asian art to tattoos and psychedelia.
Jeniffer’s imagery finds its genesis in symbolism found in nature, Aesop’s Fables and the Bible. She translates her personal life experiences into these works which hold timely meaning for her life’s journey. She was stricken with breast cancer in 2008 and found great solace in the daily ritual of painting images of hope and happiness.
She has donated her work to many causes, including the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
She was honored with a one woman show at the International Museum of Art in May, 2010.
