My name is Jenna Hestekin, and I welcome you to my website. I work in pen and ink, scratchboard, and also create wire sculptures. I welcome commissions for pet portraits, Ancestry Art, and wire sculpture. I also am an Active Member in the International Society of Scratchboard Artists (also known as the ISSA). I hope you'll take a moment to explore my site and learn more about what I can do.
Good news! From now until January 29th, 2021, you can find a selection of my original drawings, as well as Christmas cards, on display at the Pump House in La Crosse, WI. The Pump House is generously hosting an Artspire Boutique through the Christmas season, so you can see the artwork of 13 artists, and all of it is for sale. If you're in the area, I hope you go check it out!
2020 was a challenging year for us all. The vast majority of art shows had to be cancelled. While I remain hopeful that 2021 will allow for art shows at least to some degree, I am just letting you all know that two virtual art shows featuring some of my artwork can be viewed in the links below. Safe, convenient, and easy to navigate...you can shop for art in your PJ's! You can see my artwork and the work of many skilled and amazing artists featured at both the Art Fair on the Green Virtual Art Fair and also at Artspire 2020 Virtual Art Fair and Sale.
The latest news about me is that my Hereford Scratchboard has been accepted into the ISSA's 9th Annual Scratchboard Exhibition! I'm deeply honored to have won a prize at this exhibition, the Newcomer Award. The original scratchboard will be on display and available for purchase at the Ironwood Gallery in the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, AZ from November 9th of 2020 through February 7th of 2021.
