Biography

Jennifer Lynn Beaudet is an artist in the D.C. Metropolitan area.

Jennifer is an award-winning representational painter whose oil paintings explore intriguing color combinations and brushwork to convey energy and mood. In addition to capturing expressive portraiture, she is inspired by familiar narratives that evoke a sense of possibility, wonder, and story.

Artist Statement

The process of applying rich color to canvas is extraordinary. It’s tactile, focused, and a pure reflection of connection - to my mind and to my subject. At times, my brushstrokes are purposeful and exact. Sometimes, they are mixed up and chaotic. My curiosity about the subject creates a tug and pull of expression that comes through in my work. The process is meaningful to me and my hope is to portray this meaning in my art.

My brushwork and color choices go hand in hand—they are not independent of one another. Sometimes my brush will take a color in a direction that surprises me. It’s all part of the exploration and creative process. I get to share a bit of my process when I leave those marks.

My paintings highlight the possibilities of a moment. These days we need to remind ourselves to connect to our experience of the world -- feel its possibilities. The shine and glimmer of a wet roof, the warmth of light during transitions of the day, the excitement of a new adventure, the love in a person's eyes - all are precious,  fleeting, and beautiful.
