My partner and I own an organic plant nursery here in Oakland, California. After years of closely observing and intimately sharing my space with plants I felt moved to try to express their complexity on paper. I chose watercolors because the transparency and flexibility of the medium reflects the transience and light so prevalent in nature.
I sell greeting cards of my paintings and an illustrated planting calendar to help schedule your garden planting.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you see something you like!

We are proud to offer our studio artists an interdisciplinary work environment that goes beyond a physical studio space. Our studios provide a place for community, interaction, and collaboration. Located in the Golden Gate district of North Oakland, our two buildings boast over 12,000 square feet. You can visit the Art in a Box Headquarters, the Admiral Dot Miniature Gallery, the Special Collection & Print Lounge, Artists Gallery (featuring the work of our studio artists), and the new Institute of Fabrefaction.

Artist Jennifer Heller lives in Oakland with her muse, the Guster.
Jennifer brings to Van Gogh My Pet a lifetime of appreciation for color, art and animals. One day, she realized that she–like any pet owner truly in love with their pet–needed to honor her best friend, the Guster, with a pet portrait painting. On that day, Van Gogh My Pet was born.
Jennifer and the Guster (pictured here) enjoy long mornings laying in bed, tech magazines and sharing a fresh crab from time to time. Learn more about the Guster, visit the pet portrait gallery, and learn how Jennifer creates her lively and colorful pet portrait paintings.
Van Gogh My Pet is not a one woman show. Professional photographer Betty Rose photographs each portrait and all reproductions are made by the LightRoom fine art printing.
Jennifer is an avid supporter of non-profits and community (and pet!) interest group. She is happy to donate pet portraits to raise money for a good cause. Contact her for more information.
Jennifer blogs about art, web design, pets, life and more at JenniferHeller.com.

neighbors. Jaynelle launched, PieTisserie, making it her mission to fill
