Always drawn to the water, Jenan attended College of Charleston and relished in the beautiful architecture and tranquil surroundings of the holy city. She later graduated from Clemson University, earning her BA and started her career in finance in Greenville, SC-a path that ultimately led to a start in international luxury real estate development. While working and living in the Caribbean for several years directing successful communities, she spent the summers creating art programs for local island elementary school children. Throughout her travels in Anguilla, St. Lucia, and Jamaica she often found inspiration in her natural surroundings which governed many of her earlier works. She is inspired by the water - the calming yet powerful sustaining life force which she believes is universally inherent to all living beings.
Her recent body of work is strongly influenced by the surrounding salt marshes and beautiful florals along the South Carolina coast. Her work is heavily textured and the rich vibrancy of her pieces are felt through the beautiful colors and lavish layers. She primarily works in acrylic and oil pastels.
