Jennifer is a mixed media artist living in the San Francisco East Bay. Her journey to painting began with the encouragement of a high school art teacher, Mrs. A, and continued quietly through college while she pursued a degree and career in Graphic Design. Her current work is mostly non-representational with the occasional abstract landscape. She says "I think of my method as a reflection of the way we live our lives...There is so much in life that we cannot control. We make messes. We are given messes. We tidy them up the best we can. If we can appreciate both the process and the results, there is so much beauty to be had."
