Jennifer Hannaford
Port Jefferson, New York

Jennifer Hannaford grew up finding calm and freedom in the waters of California. After studying forensic science in college, she created a series of mug shots using her fingerprints; these mug shots are what inspired her to try her hand as an artist (no jail time was served!). Jennifer’s art allows her to explore beautiful moments of the living experience that have been frozen in time on canvas. She balances a scientific approach to the human form with a beautiful sense of mystery and romanticism. Her underwater scenes come across as otherworldly, and her figures seem ethereal and almost mermaid-like.

I love "Crossing"! It gives me such a feeling of being in the water myself and that moment of breaking the plane between the air and the water. I hung it right before Christmas and all our house guests gravitated to it! Thank you!!

Hi Dennis, I am not sure you are looking at my paintings. Mine are oil and mostly underwater shots. Do you think you might have accidentally posted on my blog? Thanks, Jennifer Hannaford

The piece that I have with the surf fishing scene (man casting /black face is my favorite. I look at it everyday. It is the best watercolor I've ever seen. Does it have a title and what is the value of it. I'm also curious as to the location. Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer. Dennis
