With today's busy, hectic and rushing lifestyle, we all need to take time out.  Art will bring pleasure, relaxation and a type of therapy to take one away from the world we live in today.  A time to take for oneself to just get away and enjoy. 

My name is  J e n n i f e r  C r u d e n being a full-time artist, painting with oils mostly on a larger scale, the New Zealand landscape, and having a love of resin art.   View my art via the mountain image shown.

I enjoy passing on the knowledge I have gained over the past years to others.  Enabling attendees at these art workshops to learn and take pleasure from what art has to offer, hoping each individual will find that 'zone' which we as artists are able to achieve, taking us to a place of calm and peace, where time does not seem to exist.
