I find crows especially fascinating and will always pause to watch when I come across them. The crow is found in many cultures' folklore and myth and is usually represented in the negative. However I find them to be very intelligent and beautiful. I choose the colorful chevron pattern behind the crow to balance and contrast with darkness of the bird.

Getting to Know Jennifer

All of Jennifer’s paintings are representative of an encounter with a critter in natural settings. “Being out in nature is important to me, and I have gotten to see so many wild animals as a result,” she says. “Each time I have an interaction with a new creature, I then create a piece of artwork out of that experience.” Jennifer views animals as being essential companions to mankind. Humans are fascinated by animals; we engage with them, study them, and integrate them into culture. Though Jennifer began her career as an artist painting the human figure, her switch to animals felt only natural. She works from her home studio where she can see birds and squirrels darting in and out of the redwood trees outside.
