Artist Jennifer Ross creates intimate portraits of birds, nests and horses. Jennifer grew up surrounded by the art of her mother and grandfather. Her attempt to follow in their footsteps presented detours, however, and she ended up working in art galleries selling other's work. But her desire to paint continued to grow throughout the years. In 2008, a gift certificate to a local art store turned into a life-changing event. Jennifer found inspiration in a collection of antique prints of birds' nests and began to paint her first avian series. These paintings serve as symbolic family portraits of what we all hold dear - our home and loved ones. Today, Jennifer draws on Kintsugi, the Japanese art of mending pottery with gold. Using broken eggshells, she intricately collages the individual personalities and character of her animal subjects.
