The Beautiful Ruin is a collection of mixed media artworks that unveils the hidden beauty within the journey from brokenness to redemption.
... A sneak peek into the Inspiration that Awaits ...
Jennifer Kring is an American Artist living in the South. She is known for her rich, narrative drawings layered within the pages of discarded books. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and festivals throughout the Southeast.
"My work gives a voice to things seen and unseen...
It is about the light shining through the darkness....
The beauty in the brokenness...
The golden thread that unites us all."
The Wanderlust Collection
This series of work was brought to life out of a season of contentment and joyful exploration. Untold tales of wanderlust, freedom and adventure come to life within the pages of these pieces.
During our current moment of global distress, these works seem like a dream... a lovely dream from a simpler time.
Each work is created with a delicate hand in Jennifer's studio... the creative fortress lovingly called the 'Kringdom.'
It is a sanctuary where authenticity and freedom reign supreme... where the sound of inspiration can be heard.
In the Press
"She carves the literal pages and covers of books into amazing pieces in a display few have ever seen."
Why a Commission?
A custom work of art offers a unique space to honor the memory of a loved one or preserve a beloved moment.
Commemorative artwork becomes a part of a legacy and can be handed down through generations.
“Capturing a memory or the essence of someone special is an sacred process that I am privileged to share with my patrons. By the close of a project, my clients are really more like family."
- Jennifer Kring
