CO-FOUNDER, GRAPHIC ARTIST | FINE ARTIST | PHOTOGRAPHER
Jen Aquia started her art career around the ripe age of 2, when she proudly drew her first “mural” on the living room wall with permanent markers. Her parents may not have recognized her scribbles as talent at the time, however her passions eventually led her on to earn a Bachelors of Art, in Graphic Design and a Masters of Fine Art, from Maryland Institute College of Art. She specializes in portraits and faux effects. One of her signature styles, is her montage portraits. These montages, in pencil or pastel, are drawn after she spends time sitting with someone and sharing in old pictures. This helps her form a compostion that best represents their history.
For over 15 years Jen Aquia has been living in the Keys. Eventually she began pursuing another of her passions by opening a company called Aquaholic Adventures where she rents stand-up paddle boards and kayaks as well as providing lessons and eco tours.
