Artist Jen Callahan adapts Coastal Art for C & F Enterprises

NEWPORT NEWS, Va.-C & F Enterprises has licensed coastal artist Jen Callahan for a new coastal home accessories line to debut at markets this summer.

Callahan is an award-winning artist who enjoys mixing painting techniques among watercolor, liquid acrylics, oils and heavy-base acrylics painted like oil.  Her work focuses mainly on coastal sea life, inspired by her love of the sea and her home near the waters of Virginia. Her designs for C & F include a line of four oversized home decor pillows on canvas with high resolution art transfer. The designs are "bright, impressionistic paintings of sea life, with a whimsical nod to color," according to C & F.  Retail prices for the pieces range from $40 to $45.

"Jen Callahan is a vibrant artist whose bold use of color and movement evokes the animation of the sea onto canvas," said Jennifer Sheridan, national sales manager. "We have adapted her beautiful water colors into home decor and tabletop accessories.  Coastal home accents are a strong category for C & F and Gallerie II and we are thrilled to add this great new talent to our family of artists."
