About Jenni Plym

jenniWhen I was 9, my cool older sister started doing pencil drawings of models from fashion magazines.  I was impressed, so I started copying her.  I found I had a talent for it.  In high school, aside from sports, my elective of choice was independent art.

Then college began, where I majored in psychology and set art aside for the better part of 13 years.

The summer of 2010 marked the resurgence of my life as an artist.

My favorite visual art forms are dance, painting, and drawing, and I know I’m seeing something I like when, at a glance, I’m flooded with an emotion.  Sometimes the emotion is generated by the mood of a piece; other times I’m inspired – brought to tears by the sheer skill and time it takes to execute what I’ve just seen.

That’s what I’m out to create with my art: emotion without desire… a daydream… images that arrest people’s attention, and generate an experience or a new thought.

Enjoy.  Contact me about any piece you would like to purchase or commission.  And thank you!

About Julie Gray

Julie creates her white line prints with a focus on the feeling and expression of an object or scene rather than on creating a realistic re-creation. She has been working in the white line print medium for about 5 years. Julie studied the method of printmaking under Kathryn Smith at the Provincetown Art Museum. While she has spent a lot of time working in watercolors, Julie was drawn to the white line method for its process and physical aspects; creating an image, transferring the image to wood, and finally printing the image from the wood block.

EXPLORE: Living in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts

jamaica-plain-best-of-54-of-89
With a very different style that distinguishes itself from more traditional Boston neighborhoods, exhibited by their eclectic restaurants and avant-garde charm, it’s hard to categorize Jamaica Plain, or JP as locals call it, as it is so unique.

Home to many of the jewels in the “Emerald Necklace”, Jamaica Plain has an abundance of green space for the outdoor enthusiast. This, combined with its artsy flair, easy access to downtown, and community feel make Jamaica Plain a top destination for Boston area residents.

Outdoor Attractions
Once called the “Eden of America,” Jamaica Plain is bursting with natural beauty. The Arnold Arboretum, which is maintained by Harvard University, encompasses over 281 acres of unique horticulture. In addition to the Arboretum, Franklin Park, home of the Franklin Park Zoo, is known as Boston’s largest public park*. While technically not in JP, it does border almost the entire east side of the neighborhood and allots JP residents easy access to walking trails, golfing, playgrounds, sports areas, and more. Other outdoor attractions include Olmsted Park and Jamaica Pond, which are also a part of the “Emerald Necklace”.47 Holbrook Aerial

Housing
Close to Northeastern University, Longwood Medical Area, and Wheelock College, JP attracts a diverse population including students, young professionals, and families who call it home. Together with JP’s established community, they have formed an energetic and open-minded community. According to Trendgraphix, the average price for single-family and condo homes over the last year was $580,000 making this one of the more affordable neighborhoods in Boston.

Transportation
As one of the first “streetcar suburbs” in America, JP is an ideal commuter location with access to commuter rail connections, bus routes, and both the Green and Orange Line trains.

JP is also known for hosting numerous bicycle paths such as the Pierre Lallement Path which runs from Forest Hills to Back Bay, where you can hook into other bike paths depending on your destination. In addition, there are several other pathways that wind along the Jamaicaway and Riverway for a scenic ride into Brookline, Fenway/Kenmore, or the Longwood Medical Center.

Dining and Entertainment
Foodies rejoice – Jamaica Plain’s restaurant scene is unbeatable, catering to every palate and budget while retaining top-notch charm. Local favorites include JP Seafood Café, Tres Gatos, Noodle Barn, and City Feed for their spectacular meals and atmospheres. jamaica-plain-best-of-71-of-89After enjoying lunch or dinner wander into a bakery or café for fantastic dessert options, like the cupcakes from Monumental Cupcakes and the celebrated ice cream flavors at JP Licks.

Even with its level of trendy restaurants and modern taste, Jamaica Plain still holds on to its historical roots via notable attractions and events throughout the year including exhibits and concerts at the Loring-Greenough House, community theatre at the Footlight Club and art exhibits at the Hallway Gallery.
