Jennifer’s unique style is instantly recognizable for her fearless use of vibrant color and the raw energy that her paintings exude. Her favorite subjects to paint are people, especially the face and using the eyes to tell a story as well as a reflection of the soul and spirit. Jennifer says “I am influenced by all artists in some way but get my inspiration from everyday life experiences and what I may be feeling at the moment. I try to remain transparent in my work” and that is what her collectors are so drawn to; they can truly relate to her paintings.
