Artist Interview: Jennifer Shepard

Words of the day: simultaneous. absurd. journey. celebration. intervention.

Brooklyn, NY artist, Jennifer Shepard joins ahtcast and shares a bit on her art and practice. Early on, Shepard was active in both art and music, and thought it was tough to decide which to focus on. As an artist in adult life, things appear to be a little clearer in the way that location, art community, and an organic studio practice all help contribute to success as an artist.
