About Jenna Lineweaver
Lineweaver received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in oil painting from Brigham Young University. After graduation she returned to her hometown of Chico, California, where she worked in the public art field with her mentor, Dayton Claudio, creating large fiberglass pieces in cities like Tucson, Arizona; Cleveland, Ohio; and Ogden, Utah.
Lineweaver enjoys incorporating mixed media such as fabric, paper, buttons, beads and other found objects into her paintings to an interesting dimension to her art and an element of surprise. Her love of poetry and literature is also evident in her art as she often includes relevant verse and writing. Lineweaver finds that, similar to literature and poetry, painting is a powerful way to express thoughts, feelings and struggles. Other people can recognize these things on canvas and respond to them in their own way.
In regards to her art, Lineweaver said that her art is visual poetry; it stimulates emotion and involves the viewer in the process and in the beauty of it. A painting is successful if, after that first impression, each successive visit becomes more meaningful, she said.
