Introducing betterArts' newest resident, Jennifer Elizabeth Crone

We'd like to extend a warm welcome to Better Farm's newest addition, betterArts artist-in-residence Jennifer Elizabeth Crone.

Jennifer has a BFA in painting and drawing from California State University, Fullerton, and has also studied at Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Mass.

She paints in oils and mixed media and draws in ballpoint ink and charcoal. She's slated to be in two art shows next month (stay tuned for details) and is beating the particularly wintry chill of the North Country by consuming herself in her most lovely creative endeavors.

She'll be staying at Better Farm through the end of April, when we'll be throwing Jennifer a gallery opening so you can check her gorgeous artwork out in person and support her craft.

Learn more about Jennifer at her Etsy shop and blog.
