Jennifer Richardson is the owner and resident artist of Golden House Studio. Jennifer got her B.A. in Art History from the University of Memphis and then went on to get her M.A. in Art History from George Washington University in Washington, DC.
During her time in the nation's capital, she interned with the Smithsonian Associates and became the Fine Art Specialist for Sloans and Kenyon Auctioneers. After the birth of her son, Jennifer and her family moved to her husband's hometown Murfreesboro, TN.
Once established in Murfreesboro, she began teaching art history at the Art Institute of Tennessee-Nashville and working as the Arts and Outreach Coordinator for the Center for the Arts in Murfreesboro. Jennifer was also a board member of Artsy Mamas, a non-profit organization that provided art opportunities for mothers.
When her job at the Center was eliminated due to budget shortages, she decided to continue providing the residents of Murfreesboro with art education, and Golden House Studio was born.
In her lessons Jennifer stresses individual application of the concepts the group is learning. In each lesson she discusses elements of art and design often finding a way to relate the lesson to famous artists and masterpieces.
