Jennifer Allevato - Liza Pruitt

Jennifer Allevato

Inspired by post-impressionism with a focus on color and line over realism, I spend my days painting in my home studio in Alexandria, Virginia, where I live with my husband and our two cats. If you can't find me there, you can find me exploring the local shops, restaurants, and galleries of Alexandria and metro Washington, D.C. or at home watching Netflix and enjoying my husband's cooking (yum). 

My pieces tend to have an inherent softness and stillness about them; I strive to create work that inspires a quiet moment in a loud and busy world. Allowing my pencil lines to show and often adding paper or wax crayon, my paintings become a true harmony of color and texture. I feel most connected to my artwork seeing it hung in a home, bringing elegance and warmth into a space.
