CONGRATULATIONS!……. I am proud to present the FEATURED ARTIST of APRIL: ibjennyjenny
We invite you to join with us in a big round of “verbal applause” by adding a few words of encouragement before leaving,
or click on image for Artist’s page. THANK YOU!

Here are a few words that Jen has written to tell us about herself:

I have always loved photography. I remember when my dad gave me my first Polaroid at for Christmas when I was 8 years old. I was so excited. And what did I take pictures of back then? My stuffed animals…go figure.

I grew up in a family of animal hunters, my dad and brother hunted everything from deer to quail. Of course, to them it was a sport but to me it was something much different and a fighter for animal rights was born.

I became an animal technician at nineteen but moved on to a legal career at thirty. I have spent most of my adult life doing volunteer work for one animal issue or another all the while managing a feral colony somewhere. I work with the trap neuter and release program here locally and I am a member of Alley Cat Allies Network.

Photography is now a way of life for me just as the animals are and through my images I try to send a message on behalf of the voiceless, I am the messenger. I can’t think of anything else I would rather be.

Jen has chosen these beautiful images as her favourites:

I Cross My Heart
by ibjennyjenny

I cross my heart is everything Mikey is, his sweetness is right there in those eyes.

The Prince and the Pauper
by ibjennyjenny

The Prince and the Pauper just brings a lot of emotion with it, Roo deserved to be Pampered like Mikey and now he is.

It is sooo ON
by ibjennyjenny

It’s sooo on, I was laughing when I took this because he was getting ready to pounce my way, still makes me laugh.

Jen is an outstanding Photographer with a passion for her subject, and it shows. I have chosen these breath taking images to feature. ENJOY!
