About Jennifer

My mode of working is very spontaneous and intuitive. I build up layers of paint, sand them down, then build them up some more. I like to create ‘ghost images” by allowing under-layers of line and paint to peek through to the image on the surface. The narrative quality of each painting becomes apparent through drawing, painting and adding bits of found-image collage. Everyday my invented language of symbols grows, repeats, and changes.

"Jennifer is one of my favorite artists to follow, her work is filled with a sense of whimsy and wonder. And I always love her experiments with non-traditional canvases. One day you might find her transforming wooden fruits into tiny misfit creatures and the next she is breathing new life into well-loved thrift store finds."
