September 23 - December 31

Jennifer Espenscheid was born in Spearfish, SD, firstborn daughter to loving and creative parents, who from her very beginnings fostered unconditionally her wandering imagination. Her parents gave her the first tools to draw, paint, write, and build, along with the freedom and enthusiasm to create. 

Jennifer attained her discipline and design process at the University of Milwaukee where she earned a degree in Architecture and Urban Planning. After graduation and a year of traveling North America she began painting murals in San Francisco. California gave her a start and a portfolio to travel and work from. In the years that followed she has created murals and custom fine art throughout the US and Canada.

Jennifer works with her clients to create pieces specific to the needs of a particular space and desire. From corporate art in offices, public art in hotels and restaurants, to residential work & special gifts. Visit to view examples of custom work and a complete gallery of original artwork.
