Jennifer received her BFA in Printmaking from the Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia in 1990. After graduating, she moved to New York City where she worked for Christie’s Fine Art Auction House, while studying painting at the Art Student’s League of New York. Settling with her family in Chapel Hill, NC in 1998, Jennifer paints in her studio on her property in Orange County and participates in regional shows of her work.
Jennifer refers to her paintings as “landscape allusions”, because her work is an indirect reference to a relationship with a person or persons, an emotional state or a current event. She creates mood to describe the relationship and emotion through the use of color and the drama of the sky. The landscape is representative of a story; either her own story or one that others can relate to. She views painting as a vehicle for connection with people, and gives each of her canvases a voice through written thoughts or stories that accompany them.
