Jennifer Gilman

Since I was a kid I loved to draw and be creative. In prison I utilize my drawing as a way to escape the negative atmosphere. I can get lost in the tranquility for hours at a time. Some of the drawings I do have a story that go with them and others don’t. Sometimes I draw things because of their beauty or color or uniqueness, so not all my pieces will have a personal statement and I always sign my artwork: JENEVIEVE. I sign my art Jenevieve and because I love the name Genevieve and I wanted to personalize it by changing the G to a J. Years ago one of my residents names was Genevieve and I just fell in love with that name. She was also such a classy lady all the up until she passed, and her husband just adored and doted on her. They were such a lovely couple and I’ll never forget them.
