Owner and Artist, Jennifer Walters



I’m the proud mom of seven year old, Aayden and now Mimosas & Masterpieces!  Since I was young I’ve had a passion for creating art.  Whether drawing, painting, crafting and many other hobbies, I always enjoyed creating things and sharing them with others.  As a graduate from Hillsborough High School, I graduated with Art Honors and was a member of the National Art Honor Society.  After school, I decided to leave my passion for art behind in search of the right career.  I’ve had only a few of them in my life and my longest is working for a label company in Hillsborough NJ where from time to time I still get to use some of my creative passion. 

 

I was in love with the idea of these paint and sip places and really it would have been a dream to have my own.  My own studio, something I've always wanted since I had the passion for art.  One night I took one of my best friends to one of these places.  She had never painted before but I watched her enjoy what she was doing, love the experience and the outcome, and see her artistic side blossom.  The feeling I had of seeing her go through that was a feeling I loved and I’ve been chasing since.  Not long ago another friend and I attended a paint and sip event at a restaurant where we painted wine glasses, I thought, this is it!  I can do this!  I don't need a studio.  I looked around the room, took in the amount of people and what they were all doing and thought why haven't i already thought of this!?  Genius!  I can travel and teach people how to paint and have fun doing it!  I came home that night and my mind did not stop for about 36 hours strait.  I researched ideas, looked into other companies, thought about names, looked at costs, created spreadsheets and I was on my way.  I had passion and drive that I have not felt before.  Once I get my mind on something I will run with it until I see it through.  Although I could not decide on a name right away, I set up a kickoff party for some friends within a few days of my “aha moment” and decided to do it late morning for a brunch so that people still had their day to themselves.  I named the event Mimosas & Masterpieces.  It clicked and since then, it just stuck!

 

Along with my passion for art and time with my son, I also spend time volunteering with the Ladies Auxiliary of Manville Fire Co. #3.  I have been a member and helping coordinate fundraising events for over 15 years, so as the owner of Mimosas & Masterpieces I love being a partner in fundraising events and giving back, especially within my community.  It's also why Mimosas & Masterpieces is a part of Somerset County's Partners in Business and Chamber of Commerce.  I appreciate working with members in the community and learning how we can help each other.

Hello fellow fans and painters!  My name is Jennifer, I’m a proud mom of my son Aayden, a furry 'old timer' named Buster and now Mimosas & Masterpieces!  Since I was young I’ve had a passion for creating art.  Whether drawing, painting or crafting, I always enjoyed creating things to share with others.  As a 1997 National Art Honor Society graduate from Hillsborough High School, I decided to leave my passion for art behind in search of the right career.  Although I’ve had only a few of them in my life, my longest is working for a label company in Hillsborough NJ where from time to time I still get to use some of my creative energy.

 

I started seeing these paint and sip places pop up so one night I took a friend with me.  She had never painted before but I watched her enjoy what she was doing, love the experience and the outcome, and see her artistic side blossom.  The feeling I had of seeing her go through that was a feeling I loved and I’ve been chasing since.  I would have loved to have my own studio, something I've wanted since my passion for art began.  

 

In the fall of 2015, another friend and I attended a paint and sip event at a restaurant where we painted wine glasses.  My friend said, "You know you could do this."  I looked around the room, took in the experience and said, "Why haven't I already thought of this!?"  Genius!  I can travel and teach people how to paint and have fun doing it!  I came home that night and my mind did not stop for about 36 hours.  I researched ideas, looked into other companies, thought about names, looked at costs, created spreadsheets and I was on my way.  I had a passion and drive that I have not felt before.  At first I could not decide on a name but I set up a kickoff party for some friends within a few days of my “aha moment” and decided to do it late morning for a brunch.  I named the event Mimosas & Masterpieces and since then, it just stuck!

 

Along with my passion for art and time with my son, I also spend time volunteering with the Ladies Auxiliary of Manville Fire Co. #3.  I have been a member and helping coordinate fundraising events for over 15 years, so as the owner of Mimosas & Masterpieces I love being a partner in fundraising events and giving back, especially within my community.  It's also why Mimosas & Masterpieces partners with other businesses and women, to help raise people up and support them in their endeavors.  Let's bring smiles and awareness to all!
