Jenny Cowley

Jenny Cowley became a joyful addition to the H*Art Gallery community through the connection with the Chattanooga Area Brain Injury Association. Although Jenny wasn’t diagnosed with Mesial Temporal Sclerosis until she was 14 years old, she started having medical problems at age ten and had to have three brain surgeries before age 18. She found her love of art through an art class in high school, taught by Mr. Scott Leach. She was offered a scholarship for her artwork but was unable to accept due to her disability. Jenny started making art again through free painting classes that were offered through Hobby Lobby. She enjoys many art mediums including painting, which she uses most often. Jenny’s brain injury has affected a lot of areas of her life, but art comes naturally to her and is a great source of enjoyment.
