I'm Jenny Nelson...

I've been practicing and teaching abstract painting for 20+ years. Through the years, I've painted daily and experienced all the self-doubts and personal challenges that the creative process presents — which paved the way to becoming an effective and skilled instructor. Through my online programs, I've helped thousands of students gain a deeper understanding of abstraction and improve their skills and confidence in abstract painting.

“One never knows what one is going to do. One starts a painting and then it becomes something quite else. It is remarkable how little the 'willing' of the artist intervenes.”
