Medium: Pastel; oil.
Subjects: Landscape; Still Life; Abstract
Style: Jennifer's work is often quite abstract, she paints out most of the detail, leaving just enough for the viewer to be intrigued.  Jennifer says: “Inspiration for my work comes from landscapes, earthscapes (tiny bits of earth, plants, pebbles) or rockscapes. Flowers often find their way onto my canvas as well as still lifes. I am naturally drawn to patterns, shapes and movement and enjoy translating those into works of art, striving to capture the essence of the subject using dynamic compositions and bold color.

  1. Colorful genius! I'm a big fan of Jennifer's.

  2. She might convert me to abstracts all on her own.
    (I nearly said "drive me to abstraction" but that has an entirely different meaning!)
