Jennifer's Farm


Growing up on a rural ‘dead end’ road; Ohio-native artist Jennifer Sowders, grew up spending a lot of time studying nature and its indelible thread is noted within her body of work.

Jennifer is a 1994 BFA graduate from the Columbus College of Art and Design. She is a Trustee and Signature member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, Signature of the Kentucky Watercolor Society, Associate of The National Watercolor, American Watercolor and National Oil and Acrylic Painters' Societies; and member of the Ohio Art League, as well as many local organizations.

She gained entrance into The 2020 National Watercolor Society’s  “50 Stars” Exhibition-- being quite an honor as two artworks were chosen from each state-level watercolor society to represent their state.  Her work has been awarded in both the  2022 Ohio State Fair, and  the 2022 Ohio Watercolor Society show, as well as many Juried shows throughout Ohio.  She continues to be accepted into National and International shows; including the American Watercolor Society's online associate show and is an Artists Magazine "AcrylicWorks 9:  The Best of Acrylic"  Honorable Mention winner; and will again be a published finalist in "AcrylicWorks 10" Fall/2023.

She is currently represented by the Toledo Museum of Art's Collector Corner.  (Is actively welcoming further representation as well: Contact)

Although rural, Jennifer opens up her studio: "MONgallery" to the public on MONdays, encouraging visitors to enjoy the woodlands, fields, stream and farm animals along the way.  Her work encompasses several series, including social, genre and landscape themes.  

 She lives in Fostoria, Ohio with husband,

Gary and has 3 sons.
