About Jennie

Rooted in subject matter that venerates objects and places, her works ask the viewer to stay a bit longer, look deeper and to slow down. Vibrant paintings in watercolor and oil are layered over textured grounds of tea package image transfers and tea stains. She is informed by a developing meditative practice and exploration of her surrounding environments where she finds herself mostly at home. Chairs have been the constant thread in her work, both in kitchens and currently situated in unlikely landscapes - empty, but inviting.

​She and her husband now call Durham, NC, home, on the cusp of urban, suburban and rural life, along with their two sons, and rescue dog, Cider.
