Here are Jenna's answers!
1. What is your background in art?
I have always loved drawing, painting, and crafting. I was one of the only kids in elementary school who actually liked going to art class. I took several photography and art classes in high school and college, even getting an Art & Design minor while at Purdue. Even though I was a techie in school, I would still consider myself more of an artist than anything.
2. What is your (brief) definition of street art?
I think I’d be with the majority in saying street art is a collaborative effort of putting works in underappreciated or unacknowledged areas of town. It’s so fun to give life to a dead space.
3. Who are your influences and inspiration?
For this particular project: Warhol/pop art and my roommate’s cat.
4. How do you think Small Spaces contributes to the art scene in Lafayette?
I think it did a brilliant job of giving freedom to artists. Small Spaces gave people the
opportunity to say something through art to a new audience.
5. Where (online or otherwise) can we view more of your work?
I don’t really have an online art portfolio, but I post some art on my Instagram (@hello_jrob) and my photography portfolio is online at jennarobinson.com
