This piece is of my friendly neighborhood skunk whom I've come to love and respect.   I choose the vivid geometric background because I wanted to make the black and white of the skunk really standout and that it was complementary to the skunk's personality.  This is a truly gorgeous animal with a great defense system.

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.
