Artist Bio:



Jenn (Alexander) Fletcher knew she wanted to be an artist by the first grade, and fell in love with photography as an angsty adolescent in North Carolina in the 1990s. She had an incredibly encouraging community that allowed her to focus on her art at a young age. While her subject matter and work has changed over the years, her passion for the medium has not. 

From shooting film for a local newspaper, to working late nights shooting for a tattoo magazine. From exhibiting in galleries and museums, to working around piles of Legos. From art school to teaching homeschoolers. Her path is ever changing and evolving, but what has always remained constant is the hope and need to create work that is unique. Work that doesn't look like or feel like the rest. While portrait photography in various forms was her main focus for most of her career, she completely flipped her focus in the teenage years of the 2000s, and now packs a punch in Georgia with imagery of animal skulls and bones, with hidden messages of environmental awareness and conservation. 

You may also see Jenn Fletcher branded as BlondeShot Creative. While she still mainly shoots photography and likes to think of herself as creative, the natural blonde hair no longer exists, and has been shaded by life with overtones of light brown and the occasional grey. 

When Jenn isn't creating art, you can find her overthinking things, exploring the outdoors with her daughter and husband, eating toast, making art supplies from things like burnt sticks, daydreaming about sea turtles, and taking dangerous risks by scratching her kitty's belly.
