Painting Statement

Healing Waters is a collection of landscape paintings offering an escape from our busy lives.

In choosing this years theme of Healing Waters, Jennifer aspires for her paintings to be visual reminders of our fragile natural environment and focuses on connecting people with nature so that they not only protect it, but benefit from it.

 Her painting process includes a collaged surface of recycled paper, including regional maps, layered with acrylic glazes. Together these elements build unique textures and atmospheric depth that create a feeling of inspiration active in her landscapes.

In her words, ”As our dependency on tech gadgets grows stronger, taking time to unplug and reconnect with the natural world is more and more important to our physical, emotional and spiritual health.”

I explore environmental issues through mixed media paintings using recycled maps, paper bags, and text. My focus has been on nature’s resilience, cycles of regeneration and our relationship with nature. 

My images capture nature in a constant state of change and reference the Pacific Northwest where the sky and water are constantly moving. 

Painting on wood panel, I build up the surface with layers of paper collage and acrylic paint and then I sand. This physical process reveals under layers and I embrace the accidental, which gives energy and life to the work.
My aim is not for the landscape to look real but for it to feel real. I am always experimenting, I am always learning and my process is always evolving.
