The Outer Banks of North Carolina tops my list of beautiful, semi-local places to paint, and to just unwind. While I have done numerous paintings of this gorgeous area, this painting recalls a special getaway my husband and I made to Ocracoke Island,  which was named one of the “most beautiful beaches in the USA." This scene was one of the sunsets we were lucky enough to enjoy while we were there.

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.
