Jennifer Valenzuela

Jennifer Valenzuela is a fine art painter located on the island of Maui.  She has enjoyed studying and creating fine art, specializing in oil paintings for most of her life.

After art school, she launched her career in the world renowned arts community of  San Francisco 20 years ago.  Sheʻs lived and worked on Maui since 2008, working as a professional fine artist and high school arts educator.

Jennifer works in a unique style that is inspired by the exploration of sence of place, philosphy, song, and the magic of landscapes.  As a professional artist she has created a style she refers to as "imagined landscapes" and has been featured in various shows throughout Maui, Big Island HI, San Francisco, Dallas TX, and New York.
