Jennifer B Hudson is a fresh, young visual artist creating staged imagery that is both artistically stylized and meticulously crafted. Drawing inspirations from themes of faith, and the intricacy of personal relationships, Jennifer is a dynamic and emotional illustrator of the human heart. With an innate ability to plumb the antique, the work is soulful; seeking the use of the forgotten or discarded, mechanical in nature, eerie and quiet.
Raised in a spiritual and conservative home in rural Texas, Jennifer grew up imaginative, curious, and experimental, and has used her upbringing in her intensely personal artwork to bring insight and awareness using heartfelt, acutely mapped personal experiences.
Jennifer is currently working in Albuquerque. New Mexico. she is an Mfa Degree Candidate at the University of New Mexico, and is studying within the studio art in Photography program. Alongside varied private portrait commissions, she is an international speaker and lecturer whose programs are sought after year after year by many professional public and private photographic organizations.

Jennifer’s work has been a part of many group and solo exhibitions, and is represented by three major galleries across the country.
