Jennifer was formally trained in watercolors and oils through scholarship studies in Europe. Jennifer received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado in Design Technology, and an Associate of Arts Degree in Theater from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She earned her certification to teach K-12 Art at North Carolina Central University.
Jennifer has private collectors and patrons in New York, Los Angeles and Grand Cayman. Her artwork varies in form and function from large watercolors and illustrative acrylics to classical oil on canvas, lighthearted whimsical furniture and functional one of a kind custom pieces.
From 2001-2005 she instructed over 400 students at ACME Gallery LTD - New Orleans - and curated over 35 exhibits of professional and student pieces.
Jennifer genuinely enjoys working with children and adults teaching one on one out of her studio, or in group settings. Jennifer believes each student has unique perspective, and that developing a love for art can uncover it.
Jennifer combines her theatrical background to add energy and enthusiasm to her teaching. Group discussion, concepts and explanation set a dynamic rhythm that encourages students to interact and share their thoughts freely. Jennifer's curriculum is an excellent addition to social activities allowing students to experiment, discover and learn outside the classroom.
