Jordan has been creating all her life but began showing interest in watercolor paintings in late 2018 after her sophomore year accomplishment of having a lemon painting displayed in a hospital in Meridian, MS.
Jordan claims it was natural for her to be interested in art due to her parents and grandparents always having art supplies on hand for her to play and experiment with.
Simply walking outside, reading history books, or listening to music inspires Jordan to create. An item you will rarely catch Jordan without is her notebook. Multiple sketches, notes and ideas are found throughout the pages which then soon come to life on a canvas. Jordan enjoys painting at “her spot”, which is comfortably at her desk looking into her backyard for continued peace and inspiration.
A fun and inspiring time Jordan will always remember is building fairy houses with her grandmother, who can turn nature into art such as taking a poplar bloom flipping it upside down and watching it become a fairy dress. Jordan loves the Black Belt and the magic found within its nature.
After taking art classes through her elementary and high school years, Jordan has decided to further her art education by becoming an art educator student at Athens State University and is currently working on children’s illustrations with watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media pieces.
