Jenna Fournier is a self-taught artist and musician. She fronts the dream-pop shoegazers, NIIGHTS, and also performs solo with electric guitar and effects pedals. She finds inspiration in nature, sci-fi, fantasy, feminism, and travel, all which are reflected in her expressive and whimsical paintings. Her work explores human behavior and spirituality with a candy-colored palette and disproportionate characters, often set in other-worldly, enchanting places with a bit of surreal primitivism.
Fournier began selling art as a teenager living in Las Vegas and working on the Strip, while painting on cardboard with $1 acrylics. After a move to Cleveland, she began studying art and psychology and showing work in local galleries. She has been working as a freelance artist & musician ever since, illustrating children's books, teaching art & guitar to kids and adults with developmental disabilities, working with teams on murals, and co-owning a gallery that represented both local and international artists. Her paintings have been exhibited in Las Vegas, Nashville, Los Angeles, and Cleveland's first International Art Expo. She has toured the US and completed four international tours to Japan, with plans to follow NIIGHTS' sophomore release, 'Hellebores', with a self-produced solo album that sounds as intuitively created as her paintings.
