|“Rolling Hills IV” © Jennifer Gardner|
Name: Jennifer Gardner, PSA
Bio: Born in London, and raised in Windsor, Jennifer Gardner developed an interest in art in her early childhood. After an early career as a lawyer, Jennifer abandoned her legal career in 1999 and emigrated to the United States to paint full-time.
After an early start in ink and oil painting Jennifer now paints with pastel and watercolor; she finds the vibrancy and vitality of the pastel medium lends itself particularly well to her rendering of light and color in her abstracts, cityscapes, landscapes and seascapes. Much of her inspiration is drawn from her extensive travels across Europe, the United States, the Caribbean and the Far East.
Jennifer has loyal clients in the USA, South America and Europe, comprising both private and commercial collectors. Her work is frequently shown at national juried exhibitions across the United States and at many of the annual art shows throughout New England and Florida. Her work can also be seen at galleries in Acton, and in Newburyport, Maine, and East Greenwich, Connecticut, as well as in museums and corporate collections, and by appointment at her studio in Sarasota, Florida.
Jennifer is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and her work has been published numerous times in the Pastel Journal, American Artist Magazine, The Artist’s Magazine and also published online at practicalpainting.com. Jennifer is also published in the Best of America Pastel Artists (Volume II) book and listed in the Artists' Bluebook Worldwide Edition.
