‘one door closes…’
Jennifer has been painting and drawing since 1996. Her formal training was in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at the National Art School. She has further developed her practice with a short course with Elizabeth Cummings and another with Michelle Hiscock. She has worked, studied and taught closely alongside artist Christina Parris since the age of 10.
Jennifer finds much inspiration in the natural environment and her connection to Australian flora and fauna particularly around where she lives on Sydney’s North Shore. She researches her subject matter en plein air and delves deeper in the silent sanctuary of museums like The Australian Museum.
In addition to being an artist Jennifer is a mother, a teacher, an upholsterer and a furniture maker. She approaches her artistic practice with a purposeful delight in the act of making and sharing beautiful, tactile, pleasurable and poignant experiences.
