Grace Arents Garden, with it's lovely arbors and Victorian design, is a popular setting for weddings, concerts and other organized events.  I feel fortunate to be able to paint this historic gem. I used my plein air study painted on site to develop this larger painting in the 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.
