Jennifer J Stephens was raised on the island of Maui, and has been inspired to create art since an early age. She attended H.P. Baldwin High School where she began developing her style under the tutelage of instructor Janet Sato in the AP Art Program.
Leaving Hawaii after high school for travels in the U.S. mainland and Europe, she broadened her interests in photography, mixed media and assemblage. She has since created many works in paint, photography, found object and digital media that capture her unique and whimsical perspective. Her work has been displayed in galleries on Maui and the U.S. mainland.
In 2007, Jennifer opened her graphic design studio Unique Art Hawaii, in 2012 she founded CRE8 Magazine, a publication devoted to art & creativity, and more recently started making candles featuring her art for Artful Scents. Jennifer currently resides in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii with her husband and assorted critters.
