Within her career as a financial professional, Jenn has found art to be an intrinsic part of daily life. The search for new experiences nurturing her love of creativity led her to a position within the Downtown Development Authority and a board role within the Denver Art Museum’s CultureHaus organization.

When not engulfed in numbers, Jenn travels, Instagrams her dog, and feeds her addiction to queso.
Riley is a ceramic artist and maker whose intent is to build with clean, simple and sophisticated form, while evoking curiosity about the materials. She is highly influenced by the natural world, especially that of anatomy and fundamental structure. She finds great inspiration through geometric form and our primitive, formative selves.
Painting is the ebb and flow of form. Pushing the darks farther back and pulling the lights forward, while always refining. Layers and cross sections of abstract color can, from afar, trick the eye into remembering. Painting is both chaotic and extremely precise, it all depends on where the painting is in progress. Color, technique, and experimentation are what Abram loves about the painting process. He brings his love of art and passion for murals to the FCMP, attempting to create a landmark on every blank wall. He envisions a day when people visit Fort Collins for its exclusive street art.
Creative design has always been a passion of Collin’s since a very young age. As a completely self taught artist, his artistic skills and knowledge mostly came from experimentation. Eyes have always been a major inspiration for Collin. He believes they hold such emotion and are such a powerful form of communication as human beings. He hopes to learn more about how others experience art in public places as well as encourage as much interaction as possible. Collin’s journey into the FC Mural Project is great opportunity to expand into new artistic territories and truly contribute to the Fort Collins community.
