Jenn’s goal is to capture the dynamic contours of the lands, radiating from the majestic Niagara Escarpment in Ontario, and venturing further afield. She captures the beauty of the sharp and rolling lands, with the goal of connecting more people to the lands where they live and play, and to inspire stewardship for future generations.
Self-taught in this medium, her art gives texture and depth to the land, and connects the viewer in a tangible and heartfelt way to a places and spaces all over this country and the world.
Jenn’s formal education is in Theatre Design and Management, where she worked for 10 years. In 2005, she traded it in for greener pastures, when she and her husband moved to the country to grow gardens and raise babies. After an allergy caused her to close her successful Bath and Body hobby-turned-business in 2015, she “took to the trail” to find healing and inspiration for a new path.
Jenn has always had reverence for nature and love of the outdoors – a childhood of camping and traveling led to an early appreciation of landscapes, maps, and time spent outside. Now the beauty of this country inspires her choice of almost endless subjects.
Jenn lives in a valley nestled by the Niagara Escarpment, near Creemore Ontario, with her husband, two boys, and a small menagerie of cats, rabbits, ducks, and chickens; and a large and amazing group of community and friends.
Jenn donates a yearly percentage of profits from any artwork of the area located along the Niagara Escarpment to the Bruce Trail Conservancy, who protects a continuous ribbon of land from Niagara Falls to Tobermory, for all to use and enjoy.
