Jen Niles is a self-taught artist living and working in Paxton, MA. She has been drawing all of her life, and for many years concentrated on pen and ink illustrations, including commissioned house portraits. In 2001 she began experimenting with acrylics, inspired by the comical antics and effortless elegance of her two cats, PK and Nellie. From there, she developed a recognizable, whimsical style usually featuring bold color and cheerful subjects from everyday life. Whether it is her cats, her son or her surroundings at home in New England, she never fails to find inspiration.
