Jennifer believes in a safe, encouraging, and rigorous studio space for her students. Seeking to learn from the old masters, Jennifer knows that creating and learning about art should be a holistic endeavor. Learning new skills, discovering new ideas and media, and giving a nod to the past will lead to the development of personally meaningful and impactful art.   

Jennifer displays and sells her art in local art centers around southern New Hampshire. When not in her studio or teaching she likes to kayak, read, drink tea, and spend time with her family. Some of her favorite historical artists include Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, John Singer Sargent, and John Singleton Copley.  A few of her favorite artists still creating are Doug Peltzman, James Aponovich, Yoshi Fuji, Alexander Calder, Sandy Skoglund, and Julia Galloway.
