Editor’s note: As a member of the Poplin community, by now you know how much importance I place on creating opportunities for people to be seen and heard. I’m ELATED to introduce a new Poplin contributor, Sophia Rahimi. Sophia has a deep love of fashion that is contagious. When I met her, I knew that helping amplify her voice would be as valuable to you, Dear Reader, as it would be to her. It’s pretty great to hear from the next generation, and as such, you’ll be hearing from her from time over the next few months. Enjoy!
George Jennings started of his artistic career in Washington D.C, learning from his very accomplished and talented grandfather, John N. Robinson. His grandfather was a fine art painter and from him, George learned the fundamentals of art. His grandfather was his first inspiration. Over the years, George discovered artists such as Alponse Mucha, Maxfield Parrish, Patrick Nagel and Japanese Anime, who further inspired his work. George is a well-rounded artist who has experience working with many different types of paint. His work has won awards, has been featured in print and online publications. Additionally, he has enjoyed several opportunities to teach as a guest instructor at both, the Gage Academy of Art and the Bellevue Art Museum. For the past 20 years, George and his wife Nakeesa have called Seattle their home.
