Growing up in Saskatchewan, Jennifer always had a love of the outdoors. After meeting her husband, Mark, in Whistler, they began a series of adventures that brought them to various mountain resort communities across North America. It was in Summit County, Colorado, that Jennifer first decided to pick up a paintbrush. Since that time Jennifer has continued to evolve her style. Working in acrylic paints, she focuses on the graphic nature of the outside world. Line, shape and colour are all major components in her work. Creating simpler forms from what she sees, joyous riots of colour reach across her canvases. “I love the tactile experience of painting. It is so immediate and rewarding."
Jennifer is primarily a self-taught artist, who has relied on workshops and occasional classes for her education. Living in various locations has given her an appreciation of the wide-open spaces that the prairies, large bodies of water and mountain vistas provide. She uses these inspirations when painting her landscapes. Currently, Jennifer resides in Clarksburg, Ontario with her husband, teenage son, and puppy.
