Jenn’s intuitive sense of composition and colour are evident in each body of work she unveils; from serene & subtle to bold and compelling, her work is truly distinct.
Jenn’s style is a striking convergence of texture, colour, and luxurious patinas. She allows intuition to guide her creative process and does not rely on reference photos to inspire her work.
Painting is a spiritual response; the end result of living authentically and being in tune with the gift of creativity she cherishes.
The intuitive nature of my personality flows over into my art practice. It is essential for me to paint without reference materials or a preconceived outcome.
I am fascinated with clouds, fog, mist, rays of sunlight dancing through the sky, water, mountains, trees, texture, patinas, sunsets, marshlands, rolling pastures, moody skies.
My passion for painting started from such a young age. The first thing I remember painting landed me in a heap of trouble. My dad was painting the exterior of our house and I happened upon an open can of paint with a paintbrush resting on it. I won’t tell you how that moment ended.
It took many years – and many false starts – to fully realize the extent of my passion for painting. Other creative pursuits I explored were fashion design, dressmaking, woodworking & faux finishing.
Peaceful moments and times of reflection are sacred to me, although I am also known by those close to me to be quite tenacious and passionate.
My paintings provide an oasis of tranquillity in which I find solace from this fast-paced world.
The dreamer in me is compelled to capture a moment in time that both soothes the soul and inspires hope.
