Jenny Chope

           Maintaining an art studio in Detroit, Michigan, Jennifer Somes Chope paints in oil following the tradition of earlier representational artists, focusing on still life and landscape. She is a second generation artist; both of her grandfathers were artists. Her father is an engineer and so she is especially attracted to the arrangement of things, composition through color, light, shapes, reflections, shadows – the dance of light and color between objects and their surroundings. Chope continues her art education by traveling around the country to study with various other established artists

“Painting for me is a joyous affirmation of life and its inherent beauty; an opportunity to ‘swing my arms and swing my mind’.”
