Jennifer also paints sets for the Victoria Opera and the Chemainus Theatre
After finishing her studies in Fine Arts at Okanagan College, Jennifer began working full time in theatre as a scenic artist at venues such as the Vancouver Playhouse, Calgary Opera, and the Banff Centre for Continuing Education, where she was Theatre Arts Faculty for 22 years. As a result, she has gained recognition as one of the best theatre set painter in North America. This has also given her the ability to paint large, enabling the creation of bold, haunting images.
Jennifer’s main inspiration comes from nature. The impact of humanity on wild places and the creatures which inhabit those places is a recurring theme throughout much of her artwork.
“I hope that my work will remind people of the beauty that surrounds them, and that paying close attention to the details can lead to more protection for these exquisite landscapes.”
