Artist Statement/Biography

Initially a realist painter, Jennifer Lynn modeled her work after Alex Colville and Ken Danby. While her sketch work is certainly comparable, her painting style kept pulling her back to images from the Group of Seven, Kandinsky and Monet.

After years of honing her style, she learned that capturing the emotion of the scene, or the experience of it, was a much more satisfying journey. Her recent abstracts bring together her two passions, bringing geometry into conversation with impressionism. She paints in both acrylic and oil and prefers to combine the two, using the oil-over-acrylic.

She is a veteran of the St. Catharine’s Art Battle; a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists; and also a sculptor, graphic artist and 3D modelist. However, painting is, and always has been, her first love.

Jennifer now resides in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. She moved to the Niagara Region because the crowds and colours of Niagara Region, hiking the Escarpment, and traveling through Wine Country, inspire her work daily.
