Introducing Jierna L. Focht

Jierna L Focht

Art…how to break down and explain something that is so much a part of me, that is all around us and in every facet. One of my greatest joys is to be able to express this on canvas. Portraying a view and transforming it so that others can see, and hopefully feel, what was being felt at the moment.


My artwork are pages of my life on canvas. It never fails to amaze me how a piece can change so drastically during it’s creation. The completed work, is hardly ever how it was originally envisioned. Which brings even more intrigue to the process. Not only am I able to share on canvas what I am feeling and seeing, but also learning more about myself in the process.

I love color! From the bright hues to the depths of the dark pigments. Color can be seen in all things, and not just one shade, but all shades, varying in contrast and color. One of my greatest pleasures is to be able to share this. The world around us is so full of vibrancy, whether it be during moments of struggle or breathtaking happiness. I feel extremely blessed and thankful to be able to view the world through such an exquisite lens.
