The Outer Banks of North Carolina has long been a beloved summer vacation spot for me and my family. Aside from painting there en plein air, one of my favorite activities is my morning and evening strolls along the beach. When we stay in Kill Devil Hills, I will walk down towards the Avalon Pier. It's a great place to people watch, especially the kids who always play with such enthusiastic abandon.

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.
