Jennifer Rempel is one of the premier muralists/decorative painters working today. Her concepts, problem-solving skills, project execution, and raw, innate artistic talent are of world-class caliber. She renders both classical and modern styles in a remarkable display of technical virtuosity that is always tempered by a deep sensitivity to the needs of the site and the desires of the client.
Over the past 30 years she has received hundreds of commissions — from individual clients, major design houses, architectural firms, municipalities, and national corporations such as Alcoa, U.S. Steel, United Airlines, TWA, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and Fisher Scientific. Her murals and paintings can be seen in many public places in Western Pennsylvania and beyond — from the famous “Brookline Wall” mural, to the Michelangelo triptych at Pittsburgh International Airport, to a 70-foot landscape mural for Woodside Plantation in South Carolina. Her work on the interiors of The Pennsylvanian apartment building, former home of Pittsburgh’s grand, turn-of-the-century Union Station, was featured on the PBS television program “Pennsylvania Train Stations, Restored and Revitalized.”
A graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University with a B.A. in Fine Arts, Jennifer was co-founder of the ARTificial School, Pittsburgh’s first professional school of decorative arts. Today she works from her spacious studio in a century-old former school house that overlooks one of the region’s most historic industrial neighborhoods — Homestead, PA — on the banks of the Monongahela River.
I am dedicated to both preservation and creation: the preservation of classical decorative painting techniques and imagery, and the creation of new and unique artwork based upon the aesthetic wealth of the past. As I strive to create museum-quality decorative painting, my ultimate goal is to reveal the power of art in the context of everyday. — Jennifer Rempel
