Dream Collective: Jennifer Espenscheid

Jennifer Espenscheid was born in Spearfish, South Dakota, first-born daughter to loving and creative parents, who from her very beginnings fostered unconditionally her wandering imagination. Her parents gave her the first tools to draw, paint, write, and build, along with the freedom and enthusiasm to create. Her parents were her first subjects and her first patrons buying, with sweet enthusiasm, her tiny drawings and misspelled books for quarters when she was 3 years old.

“Along with breath, love, and sleep, art has always been a natural part of my life. It is in and all around me, just as it can be with everyone.”

Jennifer attained her discipline and design process at the University of Milwaukee where she earned a degree in Architecture and Urban Planning. After graduation, and a year after traveling throughout North America, she began painting murals in San Francisco. California gave her a start and a portfolio to travel and work from. In the years that followed, she has created murals and custom fine art throughout the US and Canada. It has afforded her travel and experience from all over the world.
