Jennifer is an award-winning representational painter whose oil paintings explore intriguing color combinations and brushwork to convey energy and mood.

Artist Statement

My paintings translate color into connection.

For me, the act of painting is all about connection - to the tactile and sensory qualities of my materials, to a relationship with my subject, and to a quiet place where I can know my true self.

Similarly, I think that when you connect to a piece of art that really moves you, you feel those same things. You transcend to a space where you see more clearly and feel seen. 

I feel fortunate to have found painting in my life. The process of creating something visually beautiful through the abstraction of my subject and the manipulation of color and paint is exciting to me. It’s a clever and creative endeavor where out of the muck emerges clarity and beauty. I think we all need a medium to explore our own power to connect with ourselves and our world.
