Q&A With Jennifer Rabenstein

What is the source of your inspiration?

I love working with color, and how different colors create different feelings.

How would you describe your art?

I would describe my art about the same as I would describe myself. Unique, colorful, and full of inspirational energy!

What do you enjoy most about creating new art?

The process! Creating art is a process, sometimes flowing, other times full of challenges and frustrations. Much like life itself. I enjoy surrendering to the flow of creating.

How do you start new work? Is your process always the same? If not, how does it change?

Sometimes I feel a calling, sometimes I have an image, sometimes I have a specific request to work off of.

Do you have a favorite or “go to” technique when starting a work?

Just to clear my mind of expectations.

Do you have a favorite medium? Has your preference changed over the years?

I do stained glass, painting, henna… I love mixing things up and blending them when I can.

Do you ever experience a creative block? If so, how do you rejuvenate your creativity?

Music is really helpful when I feel stuck. Also movement and nature.

Do you have a favorite/inspirational quote?

Worrying is a waste of imagination!

Do you have any current or future projects you’d like to share?

I blend art into creative healing experiences!
