LIVONIA, Mich. (WJBK) - Inspiration can come from many different places. For one Michigan mom, reading the beloved Disney fairy tales to her daughter inspired her to paint.
Jennifer Treece spent 60 hours painting a "Tangled" mural in her 8-year-old daughter's room. The beautiful mural is from the lantern scene, where main characters Rapunzel and Flynn are on a boat at night and paper laterns rise up around them and fill the sky.
Jennifer posted photos of her finished product to the website BoredPanda -- and her images went viral.
Jennifer has always been interested in art, but only started painting a few years ago. She's worked as a graphic designer for many years, but her direction began to switch recently when a coworker asked if she knew how to paint.
She met with the coworker for two lunch-time lessons, and she hasn't been able to stop since.
Jennifer has a whimsical feel to her paintings, and she says she'd love to be a licensed Disney artist one day.
Jennifer joined us on The Nine to show us some more of her paintings, including ones that aren't Disney-themed. You can watch in the video player above. She's available for commissioned paintings.
