On a recent trip through North Carolina I was fortunate to have made a visit to a little town called Washington. It is a coastal town with a nice long boardwalk for strolling over the wetlands, and a pretty harbor punctuated with fishing boats. I did a few small sketches on site and completed this painting upon returning to my studio.

Getting to Know Jennifer

Jennifer’s early work focused mostly on the human figure, though she eventually gravitated toward landscape painting after studying the Impressionist masters. She enjoys gathering her own reference material in the field, both through plein air painting and sketching as well as taking photographs. “From my field studies, I gain an understanding of the light and a visceral feeling of time and place,” says Jennifer. “All of my paintings are places I have visited myself and explored in depth.” When she’s not painting, Jennifer enjoys gardening, cooking, and spending time with her family.
